When I enrolled in college at age 19 I had a total of eight years of formal classroom education. As a result I was not comfortable with formal lectures and receiving regular homework assignments.
The hardships that I encountered in the past will help me succeed in the future.
One out of every 100 American men is HIV positive. The rate of infection has reached epidemic proportions in 40 developing nations.
Because I am not formally trained in the medical sciences I can bring in new ideas to AIDS research and the cross-fertilization of ideas from different fields could be a valuable contribution to finding the cure for AIDS.
Because I believe that humans are computers I conjectured that computers like people can have left- and right-handed versions.
Our lives sometimes depend on computers performing as predicted.
