What I chose?
I had for my Health career project, which was given to us as a stepping stone or idea of what we would like to become. I had to take a survey which would pick out would I would like to do. The questions wet along the lines of, would you lay bricks or do you play an instrument. Out of about 50 or so results I chose three. The ones that were picked out were Advertising and Promotional managers, which focused on advertisement for small businesses and small companies. The average thing a person will do in the day of this industry is design billboards, make ads for TV, consult with a client on what they want and work with different people like contractors to make things happen. Video Game designers which create code for video games and help design all the environment of the game(I was interested in this one because I love to play video games). They create game play for a game in a days work, the work environment is very could and you get to play video games a lot. I also had the opportunity to be a Security Manager, which is in charge of people who look after places and things. In a days work they are in charge of keeping things safe and out the hands of baddies. I decided to pick Advertising and Promotional Managers because I feel that really connected with me on a certain way because my mum was one, and I could ask her for advise.

Why I chose this path and what I need?
The college that mostly interests me is the University of California, Berkeley. I chose this because its the leading in the country that offers Marketing which i would major in. The university is based in California which is a big plus for me because I love the beach. For my graduate degree I plan to go to Leeds University in Leeds England, to get a degree in Marketing and Advertising. Personally I chose there because my family is very near and is were my dad went to school. Both these colleges are leading in the majors and degrees I need to pursue my dreams.
