    Why I want to become an engineer

    I am most passionate about learning and growing around the field of engineering, as it demonstrates the strengths that I have. The subject that I mostly enjoy at school is maths; and building a career based around problem solving and logical thinking would help me build a career that not only interests me, but also would help me gain more knowledge. Throughout my eleven years of schooling, I came across situations that allowed me to use my brain, to build and manipulate a better understanding of the career path I want to follow. Before i leave school I would want to get a part time job so that i could save up and pay for the courses at university and get a head start for my dream job. I want to follow this path as it would be beneficial for when I move out and decide to do engineering as a full time job.
