Project Stage: Select the description below that best applies to your approach.

  • Idea (hoping to get started in the future)

1. Personal Journey: What’s the story behind why you decided to start this project? NOTE: All applications must include a 1 minute video that answers: “I am stepping up to make change because..."

For project JSJ each letter

2. The Problem: What problem are you helping to solve?

The first problem I am addressing is the use of smartphone technology so an ordinary person with no knowledge of ASL can use an extension of an app to translate there sign language. Solving it matters to be inclusive and to ensure easier communication between people with disabilities. The next one was inspired by classmates who vape and tell me their reasons why they vape which I understand because puffing smoke still has negative effects.

My co-founder and I are both fluent is ASL, it is not talked about very often, and it is refreshing to see someone want to do something as big as changing Google for the better!
