Hi Everyone. My name is Alex Shin. I'm a junior chemistry major from Haverford.

I have been interested in mechanical things since I was a kid and was very happy when I had my first car. I enjoyed not only mechanical aspect my car, but also the fact that I was able to go anywhere whenever I wanted. Driving has been a big part of my life because being in different locations teaches me a lot in many different ways. For example, I was recently traveling with my car in order to visit medical schools in six different cities and I would have not been able to do that if I did not have the technology. However, as all the drivers are probably aware of, there are lots of limitations with driving with a car. First, there is always chance of getting into an accident due to human errors. Second, it requires lots of energy to operate and causes air pollution.

I have not tried the iPad, which was the most widespread recent invention, because I feel like iPad performs functions that are already performed by other technological inventions that we have already. However, I would love to try it out and see if I like it or not.
