Solution

Tech worker turned creative, my goal is to write a tech/fantasy based "Harry Potter-esque" epic aimed at getting kids and young adults interested in not only tech, but diversity and inclusion. With action packed stories featuring diverse characters from different backgrounds, children learn from an early age that everyone is valuable and brings their own individual strengths.

Given the huge global reach of the HP series, a story that brings tech to young hearts is truly the magic we need.

In summary, what is your “Made on Coboat” project idea (max. 3 sentences)?

My dream is to create a series of books intended to inspire children to learn about tech, diversity, and inclusion. This will set them up to become empowered global citizens.

How much of your project can you realistically achieve in 100 days if you will get the chance to stay on the Coboat?

In 100 days on the Coboat, I will conduct my needed research, complete the outlines and mind maps, and write my manuscript .

At the same time, I will design and implement a social media and community campaign to drive awareness as well as analytics to measure and track engagement. I would use the experience aboard Coboat to share my story with the world while proving that the essence of my message to kids is true; with faith and determination, you can make the biggest of dreams a reality

Will you complete this project on your own, or will you be working with a together with a team?

I would be working along on the writing, and would gain much inspiration from the other passengers!

Why should your project be chosen?

Children who learn to code are the golden key to an abundant, prosperous, and sustainable future for ALL of us. Technology will need to be presented in a fun, engaging way that captures the imagination, and deeply inspires

Given the global reach of blockbuster series such as Harry Potter, My goal is for this novel to empower kids around the world to utilize tech to realize their dreams and the dreams of a , bright, tolerant, and abundant planet for future generations to come

What does this project mean to you?

Achieving this dream would give me the satisfaction of having a positive impact on the brighter future of our planet. It would be the fulfillment of my greatest aspiration as a human being.

Why do you want to do this project?

I am at a crossroads in my life where I have completed my childhood career goal of working at the largest tech companies in silicon valley. Now, I want to use my experience to help inspire future generations as well as embarking on a new journey of creative discovery for myself. Writing is my preferred communication I believe being on the ship, (which would be my first time on a boat) would be extremely symbolic for the new journey through the unknown and finding paradise on the other side!

Please tell us a bit about yourself and your professional background. How do you fit into a team? What have you done before within the field of your idea?

I’m a silicon valley native with a unique background. Growing up in what was the murder capital of the US, I went to school in Palo Alto where at an early age, I knew that computers and technology were the key to a better future. I then made up my mind that I would one day I would work for my hero Steve Jobs at Apple.

I've fulfilled my goal and now want to bring hope and inspiration as well as a sense of wonder and intrigue, to our future generations. I'm very excited about this next phase!
