Week B2: Design Thinking

1. The thing you currently think you’ll be doing with your life:

My first option in a future is being practical and setting out to become a Physical Therapist. Ever since I had an interest in sports and went through an unfortunate event of tearing my ACL on my left knee. I’ve been intrigued by the process of rehabilitation and aiding others to becoming their best version of themselves. In order to achieve this life I would apply to CSULB and major in Kinesiology emphasizes in Exercise Science. I will have to maintain a high GPA as well as get involved in local medical centers such as interning for a physical therapist. Surrounding myself with likeminded individuals will push me to pursue my career and assist others with their physical limitations due to an injury. After applying to a grad program and completing it, I will have to apply for the job and begin my career. This is where my knowledge and experiences will be put into action and spend a life of giving to others. Lastly, I will accumulate my wealth and live in a decent home with my family.

Rapid Prototyping:

Interview: In order to be a Physical therapist, I interview my previous Therapist through email. He coincidently had also completed his education for Physical Therapist at CSULB. He knew the curriculum has changed over the years but still required foundational skills on what works and what doesn’t in the field. He went onto mention the amount you need to dedicate to knowing every aspect of the human body and functional movement patterns to understand your patients. He also discussed the writings and reports you do for every patient to be prepared to analyze and document the process of my patients. Lastly, he recommended to getting involved by interning with him to get a grasp of the environment.

2. The thing you would do if the current thing disappeared tomorrow:

If my first goal had disappeared, I would like to become a YouTube Fitness Influencer. I have been intrigued into the life of fitness as healthy is something I highly value. Through YouTube I notice it can be an excellent platform to deliver content on a certain topic across millions of viewers. I will have to know how to handle editing videos and camera equipment like a DSLR camera. By starting my YouTube channel, I can post content relating to fitness as well as document my personal fitness journey to inspire others. By using my prior knowledge, I can strive become creative and present myself in a positive manner. Slowly over time I will gain recognition and build a solid community to give to. Through years of being myself and helping others I will become an influencer to the fitness community. This will open more opportunities for me to collaborate with new creators surrounding fitness/health. Eventually, I will be earning enough revenue and be able to travel around the world more and live an open life.

Rapid Prototyping:

Practice: To become a YouTube Fitness Influencer, I went around my friend who likes to vlog casually his music experiences and adventures around Southern California. We went on a full vlogging day and gave me key points to an effective shooting with the camera angle. He also let me practice with his editing software and get a feel on the equipment. Overall, it surely felt like I was getting the hand of it but now needed to implement my own content.

3. The thing you would do if you were financially secure, and no one would ever laugh, go ahead, what would it be?

If I had all the money in the world I would love to become a Streetwear Reseller. I’ve had an interest in streetwear clothing as it’s an outlet to express myself but also has a high market value to live off on. The main way reselling functions is buying clothing and reselling for a higher cost. The key rule is being resourceful and doing research on local forums and social media post to know what items of clothing has the most “hype”. After, you’ll have to spend your own money and purchase the item before it sells out. Although, some items can be a hit and miss and are I’ll have to make a judgment based on the surrounding “hype” on it. Once I acquire the item I can post a sell on a website or my own social media account and having offers sent to me. This is a continuous work of art that requires a ton of time and hustle. However, in the process you meet a ton of big name designers and grow a community you feel a part of. Eventually, I can make a living with a substantial annual income and begin buying a home. I will then start my own family and live with peace and happiness.

Rapid Prototyping:

Practice: Being a Streetwear Reseller I can start on a small scale and be part of side hobby for me. Luckily, my cousin has been in the community of reselling and knows the gest of it better than I do. So, I spent the day learning how he handles his interactions with customers and how he goes around social media to hunt for new items popular at the time. I learned it was time consuming being on your phone and driving to variety of location to find that stack of clothing pieces to make a profit off of. However, it’s about networking and sticking through the difficult moments like him that get you to have access to more clothing so your net-worth can grow.
