I am interested in participating in the Summer Silicon North Star program and traveling to California to visit Silicon Valley. I am sure that having a close up and personal experience with technology and the internet will help me better understand weaknesses and strengths in regards technology. By participating in this program it will improve my understanding of technology, and also help me become a better student and professional. Having this opportunity to visit all these places will help me advance in this field and will give me much more experience and insight into what it's like to work more closely with technology. I look forward to meeting professionals from Google, Facebook, Apple and Stanford University their insight will help me succeed in life and my career. Thank you for your time and consideration.
