California, June 2 (IBNS): An young India-American IT professional is running for the post  of California governor.

Shubham Goel is originating from Uttar Pradesh.

He has been using virtual reality technology as he interacts with people.

“I think virtual reality technology will change the world and solve educational issues in California,” he told The Times of India.

“I was born and raised in California. New-age tech can fix issues. I believe I am the first politician to campaign in virtual reality. There are many innovators out there, but they are not as involved in politics as they should be,”  he said.

He tweeted: " Campaigning for Governor of California in Virtual Reality worlds! Virtual Reality is full of possibilities which is what our state needs & can easily integrate in our education system to benefit students' learning! #VirtualRealityManager #California #Governor #VirtualReality #VR."
