  • 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..."

I decided this project because I wanna help people to become somebody and follow their dreams. Skateboarding is my favorite hobby and I've love skateboarding since I was a kid.

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

What im helping to solve the problem is just to have people to have fun with this project. I want people to follow their dreams and never give up. People deserve to be someone and have fun on what they love to do.

3. Your Solution: How are you planning to solve this problem? Share your specific approach.

How I'm planning this is making ideas on how to make this work cause I really want this to work I've been planning this since I was in 10th grade that's when I had no one to skate with cause I wanted to skate everywhere but the people that I was before didn't want to go far.

4. Example: Please walk us through a specific example of what happens when a person or group gets involved with your project.

If someone wants to be involved with this project I'll be glad to have someone to help me out with this project I want people who really into my project.

What's different about my project is having a tripod that moves with a Bluetooth watch that helps you record where you at and where you want it too.

6. Impact: How has your project made a difference so far?

I engage to one of my friend ashanti and he my second manager about this project. I also engage to my teachers and my family. They believe I can do this cause they know I love skateboarding and help people.

7. What’s Next: What are your ideas for taking your project to the next level?

What I wanna do is collab with other skating companies.

I have people that would support me which is my family and friends cause they be seeing me doing great things that I've been doing.
