With a wish to represent the Indian community in California and make Indian voices heard abroad, virtual reality manager and youngest candidate for Governor election Subham Goel participated in the elections that happened on June 5 this year.

In an exclusive interview with Catch News, the 22-year-old Goel said, "I hope my running will help Indians and young people understand that all you need is courage and a plan to make a change and that you don’t need loads of money or fame to make a difference."

Being a techie by profession Subham wants to use technological and feasible platforms to improve the state for all people.

One important thing that he wishes to do is eliminate the governor’s ability to appoint the University of California's board of regents and instead have the students appoint them.

Believing that this will make the board more accountable and prevent fraud like the one happened when the President of the University, Janet Napolitano, hid $175 million from students.

Focusing on a digital and transparent mode of functioning, Goel said, "Centralised and transparent digital profiles for all California office holders that show their financial interests for the past 10 years and the platforms they advocated for during elections and their progress towards them."

Recently graduated from the University of California, he wants to incorporate virtual reality into the education curriculum across all educational schools in California to improve and innovate the learning process.

When it comes to health, Subham wants to create a public database of health records for healthcare companies in California that will use artificial intelligence on the data to predict a patient’s risk for medical situations in the future.

He even wants to mandate that health care insurance and provide free internet of things healthcare monitoring devices to their customers. The customers can choose from an assortment of devices which will send real-time data to doctors. This will save billions in preventive costs for the healthcare industry.
