HI, I’M PATRICK CHOI.
As a student at the Technical University of Munich who is passionate about entrepreneurship, personal development and digital technologies, I am eager to challenge myself to reach new heights.
I created this website because I wanted to put myself out there. It doesn’t just serve as a creative outlet but having an online presence helps me to stay commited to the goals I set for myself.
For instance, I set up my own Impossible List (which is more than just setting goals or a bucket list) to avoid stagnation. As a lifelong learner, I like to read books which is why I keep a Reading List here as well.
In any case, I have much greater projects planned, so stay tuned!
Becoming a Product Manager at the Digital Product School
The Digital Product School, aka DPS, is where the best talents from all over the world come together in interdisciplinary teams and learn how to build digital products that users really love. With the admission into the DPS as a Product Manager, I have the amazing opportunity to learn the ins and outs of being a product manager from the best. I’ll have an own team with a software engineer, an AI specialist and an interaction designer, and we will build a digital product solving a real world challenge in 3 months! It sure is exciting!
The program is especially valuable in my eyes as Product Management isn’t something one can study at a university commonly, but here I can learn from the best and gain practical experience. Being able to explore many different roles early on is incredibly helpful for me to see what is most fun and rewarding for me to pursue.
Working through Harvard’s CS50 course
Harvard’s CS50 course is taught by the amazing David J. Malan. “Introduction to the intellectual enterprises of computer science and the art of programming.
It was a super challenging yet extremely fun experience. I absolutely recommend it if you are not already an expert and like to learn the whole package of Computer Science that is demanding yet doable.
For example, for the last problem set I built a web application where anyone can reigster as a user, buy and sell stocks.
I also finished the final project! I made a productivity dashboard. For more check out this video demo or my GitHub.
Hard work pays off!
As already written further below I had made up my mind and had opened my YouTube channel with my first ever video. Well, now my second and biggest project has been launched:
A DAY IN MY LIFE AT TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF MUNICH (TUM).
In that video I take you with me on a journey that shows what it’s like to live as a student on a daily basis, while the pandemic was just looming at the time. I overcame the barrier of filming myself in public and included all kinds of creative elements that I had up my sleeve to deliver a truly complete experience. Epic cinematics, humor, personal insights included.
While I still aspire to even higher quality as surely I have still a ton to learn, I am beyond happy to hear such positive responses from friends, family and strangers! (Update: As of writing this update, the video got around 19,000 views, who would have thought?? I sure didn’t! Just do what you enjoy and the results follow!)
I have new videos planned on topics such as student life, productivity tips, personal growth, creativity, entrepreneurship and more!
Sounds interesting? Then subscribe to not miss anything! Of course this is also incredbily helpful for any channel just starting out.
Not your plain ‘ol bucket list
Have you ever thought to yourself “Huh, that would be an awesome thing to happen in my life some day. I should put that on my bucket list.”? What happened to that list? Not much? Well, enter the IMPOSSIBLE LIST!

My Reading List
Learn about the best books to read
I love reading. It expands my horizon and contributes to my journey of lifelong learning. To make sure I keep this habit, I am maintaining an updated reading list where I share with you the best quotes, learnings, recommendations etc.

What is stopping you?
I had this idea of making videos for a long time. For me it is a way of expressing myself, communicating with the world and sharing my learnings. To put an end to my hesitation and doubts, I finally opened up my new YT channel.
What about you? Do you have anything on your mind that you really want to do and yet the thought of doing it paralyzes you? Well, just do the first step, even if it’s a small one! Everything else follows!
I actually did it! First full video was out. Then the second one. And another one. And these videos actually made an impact. I helped thousands of prospective students see how student life was like at the Technical University of Munich, or how prospective student consultants could get a teaser on what awaits them should they embark on this journey.
New videos coming soon! On student life, productivity tips, personal growth, creativity, entrepreneurship and more!
