Designing for the future, Iddris Sandu is this generation’s digital architect and technologist creating new realities. At 13 years old, Sandu taught himself how to code. Now at 23, he is focused on building a foundation that benefits kids, developing schools in Ghana, and enhancing the digital experience for the younger generation. He’s recognized for his work with Nipsey Hussle and creating the first “smart store” in Crenshaw. Sandu mentors children in Compton to build their technological literacy. The digital architect is looking to build more sustainable systems and technological infrastructures that can help sustain the ecosystem. His definition of reality is, “being able to take your dreams and exist within them.” As he enhances the reality of life, he’s excited to see what the next generation can do with their plethora of resources and access to knowledge and information.
The infrastructure and the foundation you build can last beyond your life and benefit generations to come!
