Kylan Nieh – Nestle Very Best in Youth Project Winner – San Jose Photographer

I was contacted to photograph Kylan Nieh for the Nestle Very Best in Youth Project.  Every year Nestle USA recognizes several outstanding young people from across the country and Kylan was a winner from the west coast area.  I was asked to capture his personality and I chose a handful of images to share.  He will be published, or shall I say “we” will be published in a book Nestle USA prints out for it’s winners.  Kylan sent me his biography and list of awards awards but there was way too much to list so I narrowed it down.  Congratulations Kylan and best wishes at Berkeley!!!

What are your career aspirations (college, profession, etc.)?*

As a student at the University of California, Berkeley, I strive to fulfill my curiosity in the subjects I am most passionate about: Computer Science, Economics, and Business Administration. Next year, I will apply to Berkeley’s Haas School of Business. If admitted to Berkeley’s business program, I hope to pursue a double major in Computer Science and Business Administration.  After receiving my degrees, I hope to work for a successful company in the Silicon Valley. Through working in the high-tech industry, I hope to discover innovating wonders in the computer science industry and to start my own company one day. To strengthen my entrepreneurial and business skills, I hope to go back to school after gaining work-experience and obtain a Masters in Business Administration.

With the technical skills I obtain throughout school and from working in the high-tech industry, I hope to utilize my knowledge and apply it to my ultimate endeavor of becoming a successful entrepreneur. As an entrepreneur, I aspire to bring new and exciting discoveries to the world through technological discoveries. With these new innovations, I hope to reach out, enrich lives, and impact the world for the better.
