“What did you think was the coolest job in the world when you were younger? Do you still feel that way now?”
When I was a little girl it was a tie between wanting to be a Ballerina Civil Engineer and a Doctor. My dad was a civil engineer and I have always been fascinated with bridges. At the same time, I was a girlie girl and had my heart set on being a ballerina with a pink and puffy tutu. I also wanted to be a Doctor and help people feel better when they were sick.
I still think that these are pretty cool jobs. I still wish that I could be a ballerina with immaculate posture and grace. Not to mention a phenomenal dancer’s physique, but I think my chances in that career path have passed.
Engineering is an excellent job choice, but I do not feel confident in my math skills at this point. I have been considering becoming a doctor, but I am starting from scratch and that would take a lot of schooling and catch up on my part.
Now that I am back in school I am on a path to become who I want to be “when I grow up.” This year I am facing my fear of technology and math and am studying computers. I would like to do something with technology and the medical field. I am looking forward to finding out where I will end up and am enjoying the journey along the way.
