Quick Write

I chose the STEM career, civil engineer because it includes exploring the landscape and building multi- materialized homes and buildings.It's closely related to architecture,my dream job, and sometimes recommended to get a degree in when studying architecture because of the knowledge, high landscape studies, and construction experience.Plus the work environment is friendly: meaning you have complete freedom but work is serious.
