Explain your idea in details:
The project aims to design and develop a smart phone application enabling the individuals to report problems related to civic living. This means individual living in an area would have way to report the problem via text or image (e.g. garbage, sanitation in their area etc.). This App will help the users to describe the problems in their vicinity (area) via text by taking an image and sharing it. Once the user reports a problem, the app will create a marker on the google maps taking the current location of the user or else the app will ask the user to specify the location.

While pursuing a Bachelors Degree in Information Systems and Management from Manipal University Dubai, I have developed skills in graphic design, software development, database administration, mobile application development, networking and information security. This knowledge has enabled me to operate in Windows and Linux platforms and master multiple software development platforms. I started my career as an IT Security Trainee with AZMAX Computers LLC. Working under the direction of senior members, I developed hands-on experience during this period. I got the opportunity to complete a certification conducted by Microsoft. I was also a member of the jury panel at the 2018 Intel Code Modernization workshop held in Dubai to enhance computer coding and software development as per new age.
