Why do I want to be an engineer? Well that is an easy question. Ever since I was about 8 years old I knew that I like to build things of some sort, weather it was Legos or helping my dad build a tree house for me I was always interested.
As I got older I have learned that I wouldn't want to grow old and still do hard work. So to solve that solution is to work in something you love, that way I won't ever have to work a single day in my life, it will be fun.
A good think is that I have already taken a baby step into my future engineer career. I am currently taking an Engineering Concepts course at my school. Then I will continue taking the following courses the consequent years and graduate from high school. After high school I plan to go to college for four year and get my Bachelor 's degree which I will then be well prepared to look for a job and rise up in the world of engineer's world. But of course, this isn't as said and done, I have to bust my tail doing the unpleasant things of studying to get to the fun and building amusing and cool buildings for a living lifestyle.
In conclusion, getting this grant will help my parents and I a small portion of our worries feel more at ease for sending me to college. They have enough worries about getting the bills paid that this will be a blessing to them and me because I see how hard they work every day to pay the bills and put food on the table.
