Emerging Technologies

I love to watch, talk, listen about emerging technologies and the value they provide to improve our lives. It just amazes me how we can use those technologies in our lives in many ways combining them efficiently.

Give Examples of Your Bold Claims!

Speaking as an experienced manager who has recently taken on hiring responsibilities, I can confidently state that I would not hire 99% of the people responding here. The answers are hugely vague, horribly generic and painfully cliche. However, the biggest flaw with the majority is that there are no examples to verify the bold claims of awesomeness. You're a hard worker? You have amazing customer service skills? You are good at studying?! Every applicant says that. GIVE EXAMPLES. You need to verify your claims, or your application will be canned immediately. Oh, and saying you have certain awesome personality traits or abilities because you are religious is totally meaningless.

Music and Listening to My Heart

I'm 14 (high school in our country) and passionate in music. Why do I know so? Because i have always had interest in it since I was younger. Society made me believe that I can't make a living through music, so I decided to look for a different path for myself since I myself am smart. I study in an science high school only for few chosen students in our districts. I thought I should be a doctor, but I felt that when I think of my future, I see myself as so, but what I feel about it is lost. My heart wasn't in it. I realized what was missing, why I felt empty about imagining my future. I denied my passion for music back then, but now realizing what I truly want, I feel happier and more alive, cause I just listened to what my heart says, and music is what I want.


My passion is to become a musician. I am very good at studying. I could become a engineer or something else. But I chose music because it makes me more happy than studying so I decided to move in the path of music. Of course it is called passion. When you are passionate about something, you show more interest in that. And that interest leads to success.

Children Hospital passion

The rush if everything, the sound of ambulance sirens, people rushing down the halls in scrubs, medical equipment everywhere, the smell of rubbing alcohol, seeing people who have gone through hell and have gotten back on their feet. The fact of knowing that everything gets better with time and knowing that you could be the reason why somebody is doing something that they love once again. You get this feel for the place that you just can't let go of. Everyone there is like one big family. And after waiting so long to fit in as a patient, I finally feel like I am part of that an I will NEVER give up that feeling. I have a passion for the Hospital and the reward that comes along with working there one day I WILL be an orthopedic surgeon at Hasbro Childrens Hospital
