There is no doubt that you are the future of this country. Most of you are connecting with your friends through technological devices like your smartphone and tablet, and one cannot even begin to imagine how technology will evolve into the future.
Even though these days we tend to take this technology for granted, did you know that in your grandparents younger days these things did not exist?
While young people are very quick to pick up how to use this technology, your grandparents, even with their years of experience, are not so fast at learning the technology.
They need someone with great patience who will go at a slower pace to teach them the benefits of digital literacy.
That is where I come in. Since early 2014 I have been going around to senior citizens homes to teach them how to use their computers and technology.
Often times young people don't have the time to sit down with their grandparents and show them this stuff, as you are most probably using your devices to connect with your friends. This makes your grandparents feel isolated and alienated.
I am sure a lot of you young folks could run circles around what I've experienced in my 35 years of working with computers. Mind you in my day I didn't see my first computer until I was aged 16. It was for a computer art course at TSHS.
So I urge you to tell your grandparents about me and what I do, so that they too can enjoy the same benefits of technology that you are all used to.
