Emmanuel takes interest in a wide variety in things, always picking up skills and counting the experiences learnt from them. He is ingrained with the saying “be a maker not consumer” mostly said by his Dad(Keith C.).
Starting at a young age, Emmanuel was introduced to programming Java in a game development software(Unity 3D) where he first learned how to write a few lines of code as well as objects, vectors and physics. He then backtracked into Scratch, taking an intermediate course as it taught him more of the fundamentals of programming and app development.
Currently, Emmanuel is taking an online Harvard course on computer science(CS50) to continue to enhance his coding skills and proficiency.
Emmanuel takes joy in programming and designing environments that you can come to life in. He loves playing video games so he set out to discover how they are made. Now using C# (Csharp) in Unity 3D that he self-taught himself to use, he creates games every now and then for him and his brother to play together. Here’e one of his projects he posted online: https://gamejolt.com/games/httpsgamejoltcomEmluke/383347
and one of his 2D games made on scratch: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/120015779/
Being introduced too investing by his dad, Emmanuel has already made several successful stock investments, already earning a small salary off returns making over a few hundred dollars. Using his money saved up (from Chinese new year and working for his dad) he uses it to make more money instead of putting it in the bank(cause Emmanuel likes risks). Recently investing in a stock with a partnership with one of his close friends in order to increase capital, he is continuing to hone and develop his investing skills.
With his brother Luke, Emmanuel starts a YouTube channel, making their toys come to life with stop-motion, with over 50 000 views and several hundred subscribers, the try their best to continue the expansion of their channel. Emmanuel has learned a lot of video editing skills from this small hobby of his, and has been asked multiple times to put it to use for his school celebrations and activities.

Emmanuel started writing from a young age, inspired to write his own mini series with his interest of knights and adventure. He published his first picture book in 2012 with the help of his parents that encouraged him write even more.
Through the past several years, Emmanuel has written and thought of many book series but has not gone to publish many of them. This includes his Minecraft book, inspired by other authors writing stories about the game during its peak. Emmanuel promptly shared it with his class after spending many days in front of the computer, and was given much appraisal and feedback after being requested to read out loud to his peers by the english teacher who supported his efforts.
Thankfully, he has gotten around to publishing another story on the Apple Book store based on his favourite game PUGB. His book is now published to not only the Apple Book Store but also to retailers like Barnes & Nobles, Kobo and SmashWords. Emmanuel would love for you to read it and will greatly appreciate any comments on his story.
