I have always had a strong bond with computers. At the age of four, I began to experiment with an old Power Macintosh. Following that age, I tracked each Windows operating system as it was developed, from Windows 95 to Windows Vista.
I am currently a freshman at Ridge High School in Basking Ridge, NJ. Also in Basking Ridge, I volunteer at Liberty Corner Computing, maintaining the website and instructing all ages in everything from FrontPage to PHP. Liberty Corner Computing provides after school enrichment activities as well as summer camps and gaming events every Wednesday and Friday nights.
As of July 2005, I have discovered that I am a Mac addict at heart and have been from the moment I set my hands on my shiny, new eMac. Since then, I am always looking for new tricks to improve the already great OS X with everything from freeware to commonly-known keyboard shortcuts. Although I am a faithful Apple fanboy, I am still working towards my Microsoft Certified Desktop Support Technician (MCDST) certification. I plan to take the test by the end of 2006.
In my free time, you can find me biking, playing tennis, listening to music, reading, or playing around with computers.
I feel Happy reading about young people like Jake. I wish I could see someone like him here in Saudi Arabia. I have heard about several kids who are as smart. Sadly, we don't have a system that helps them to flourish.
To Yazeed, the "Special Youngman" in my Family,
I wish you success in your study. I'm very confident that you can do amazing stuff. All what you need is to continue as dedicated and enthusiastic about your study. You could make a great programmer.
