My name is Isaac. I am from Texas. I lost my dad to cancer when I was 6 years old and my mom often tells me that the best thing she can give me is an opportunity for a good education. When I grow up, I want to be a Structural Architect Engineer in the building and construction field. Architectural engineering interests me because I like working with my hands and being outdoors. I am fascinated by the way sky scrapers are.
I learned about this career by brainstorming with my mom about what I am interested in and what I like to do. We both noticed that I like playing Minecraft on the Xbox. Minecraft is a video game where you can make your own world, designing and building your own structures. After considering my interests, I have decided I want to become a Structural Architect Engineer.
