Hello, my name is Jesse Lociel and I am a freshman here at City Tech. I was raised in Manhattan, then moved to the Bronx. In my spare time I like to play video games and watch anime as well as a lot of Netflix. Video games and anime have been in my life since I was young, and I honestly don’t see them leaving it anytime soon. I also like to listen to a lot of music, though it’s mostly not apart of the currently trending songs. I enjoy finding new music to listen to as well as finding remixed versions of older songs. For my career goals, I want to do coding for either computer software, games, or for websites.
As a writer, I don’t really have a strength. I would say my weakness is sometimes getting sidetracked when writing something like an essay. I also feel like I stretch ideas longer than I have to. As a reader, I guess my strength is looking for the meaning of a text. My weakness is getting bored rather easily and “losing the groove” if I don’t find what I am reading interesting in the slightest. I for the most part don’t enjoy writing at all because I think it just gets repetitive. I enjoy reading for the story. If the story of a book catches my attention and I like it, I usually finish it pretty quickly because I just spend my free time reading that.
I have absolutely no experience with OpenLab, but I do have a history with tech. It’s always been there as far as I remember. I have so many memories relating to tech (games, shows, etc.).
I have a lot of experience with Science Fiction, as it is one of my favorite genres. Whether it’s a book, a game, or a movie, I enjoy it all. I believe most of the books I’ve read in my life have been Science Fiction. The same goes for the games I’ve played. Halo, Ratchet and Clank, even Transformers. Sci-fi is just a big chunk of my life. However, I don’t see Science Fiction connecting to my career interests. I see it as more of a……very good hobby.
I expect to obviously learn more about sci-fi, in regards to the aspects required for it other than a possible/impossible future.
