Michael Teferedegn

My name is Michael Teferedegn and I am in college to learn as much as I can, because we all know that knowledge is power.

I never really had any interest in technology as a kid, because I was raised in Africa, Ethiopia and It was not a technologically advanced country to say the list. My dad who traveled to America a lot would show me how to use interesting programs such as java and command prompt on his computer and I was immediately hooked on technology. After I moved to America at the age of 12 I was so surprised on how much technology had evolved, and I was almost mad on how I was blind too what was going in the rest of the world. I don’t want people to miss out on all the amazing things that technology can offer that I had missed out on when I was a kid, so I want to show and help people get used to technology in a way it can help them out and make their lives a little easier.

I don’t have that much creativity but I can work hard and learn new skills that I can use to make up for my lack of creativity. Graphic design is a subject I am interested in because it is basically the part of technology that people are exposed to the most and it is something that can be so diverse and interesting. I believe that it is the face of technology and no matter how much I know about 0’s and 1’s if I can’t present what I created to people in a way that looks good, appealing and gets my idea across all my work would basically be useless. Graphic design is also connected to a lot of history and it is always fun to know more about history and why we are where we are at present day and maybe get a little insight on how the future might look.
