THIS IS ME - ABBY DENISON
"Behind me and before me is God and I have no fears."
Who am I?
I value my religion (Christianity), freedom, responsiblity, having a family, and having friendships.
My main skills involve music (piano, singing, other musical instruments), math, science, and reading.
I am a musical learner. I turn things I need to remember into ryhmes or tunes, and it'll stay in my head. I can't remember cold, hard facts, but I can remember songs and ryhmes. I learn by music.
I have a well balanced, realistic sense of self-esteem.
I am very interested in music, science, and I like to know how things work, so things like mechanics and tools have always interested me.
Where am I Going?
My career as an Aerospace Engineer:
JOB DESCRIPTION: An Aerospace Engineer designs aircraft, spacecraft, satellites, and missiles. They direct and coordinate the design, manufacture, and testing of aircraft. they inspect malfunctioning or damaged products.
SALARY (anually): $97,480
JOB OUTLOOK: This job is expected to grow 5% by 2020.
CLUSTER: This career is in the STEM cluster.
WORK SCHEDULE: They work full-time, sometimes on the weekends.
WORK ENVIRONMENT: They spend most of their time in an office.
Something that I thought was interesting was the fact that this job combined the two jobs I couldn't decide between; an architect, and an engineer. Another interesting thing about this job is that you get the chance to design equipment that will fly around the world or go into space.
How do I Get There?
COLLEGE: I think I would like to go to Georgia Institute of Technology. It is located in Atlanta, Georgia. It has programs that I could take to get a career as an aerospace engineer. It is far from my home, but I have family that lives in Georgia, and I could visit them.
COST: The out of state tuition fees are $$29,954.
DEGREE: I would need at least a Bachelor's degree, but it is possible you could need a Master's degree.
SCHOLORSHIPS: I would like to qualify for a Governor's Scholarship. I would like to qualify for this particular scholarship because with it you can go anywhere you want to. It's not to a particular college, so you don't have to go to the college that gave it to you. You'd have the opportunity to do anything you want.
