Lightning struck a penny as he was going down to pick it up.” He wants combine his favorite subjects with his imagination. “Science and engineering. I want to create things that no has ever created or accomplished.” That includes medical cures, too. “A medicine that can heal you instantly.” It’s a sign of Michael’s compassion for others. “I’m caring and I like people a lot.”
