What inspired you to get involved with various aeronautical projects such as NASA Flying Car and FlykeART:
Life is very short. With that, I want to make sure that I go after my dreams and live my life to the fullest extent possible. Both NASA Flying Car and FlykeART were part of my dreams, so I made them happen.
You were chosen to be on ProMazo’s list of Most Interesting Students for a reason. Do you have any advice for other students hoping to create their own success:
You must follow your own instincts, gut intuitions, and enthusiasm. Once you embrace all three of those qualities, I believe that finding your own version of success is then just a matter of time. Secondly, do everything that you do with purpose. Always keep your doors open – network, cherish the people around you, and consider everything an opportunity. You never know who or what will come into your life and lead to a life-changing event.
“Failure is not an option.” - Gene Kranz, flight director of the Gemini and Apollo space shuttle missions at NASA
Biggest role models or inspirations:
My father and Elon Musk.
I would be willing to sign up for a one-way trip to Mars.
I plan to grow my company, FlykeART exponentially and become a major influencer in the aviation industry. After that, I want to get involved in industries in the neural network, including bio-fuel energy and flying vehicles. I am going to make real changes – hopefully revolutionizing modern science and engineering.
