What was your littleBits “a-ha!” moment? The moment you were bitten by the littleBits bug.
In fourth grade I went on a field Trip to Oakland University to their new Engineering building. In one of the labs they had littleBits for us to experiment with. We made a lamp and a loud horn. When I got home I asked my dad to buy me some littleBits so that I can invent something.

When starting a littleBits project, what does your design and video process look like?
First you have to think it, then you find a way to do it. There were troubles along the way, but I walked away for 15 minutes and for those 15 minutes I kept saying to myself “I CAN DO IT!” and I ended up finding a way!

How has littleBits impacted you creatively?
When I was little, I did not know how to invent things. With littleBits, I now can invent things that I didn’t know were possible.

What do you plan on inventing next?
An alarm clock that you cannot hit snooze and it only turn off when you get out of bed.
