During his Ignite @ ASU presentation on November 2011, Justin shared an idea to create a new tool for learning a new language and preserving unique dialects. Here is what he said about his experience at Ignite @ ASU:
“I’m a recent ASU graduate with degrees in Biology and Anthropology. My hope is to create a tool that aims to preserve the diversity of languages and dialects throughout the world.
The thought that many citizens in foreign countries have mastered two different languages is very impressive in my mind. I definitely feel a little left in the dust when meeting with people that are multilingual. Ignite @ ASU was an awesome way for me to present my idea on creating a multilingual community that spans the entire globe. Meeting the other presenters and hearing their innovative ideas was very exciting. Such innovation only further inspires me to do my part to help solve a problem that I see in the world.
Take a look at some of the other ideas that were presented that night and I hope you will feel the same way I do. Every solution starts from a simple idea, so when you find something you’re truly passionate about, pursue it until you reach your goal.”
