My career goal is to be a Video Game Designer. I’ve had such a strong passion for gaming since I was 14 years old, and I believe that people should try to make careers out of what they love. Changing the world with video games sounds silly, I know, but hear me out. I’ve written essays and given speeches about how video games can reduce stress, and that is how it could change the world. We live in a world where technology is everywhere; almost everyone has a cell phone, and every cell phone has access to free video games. When people play games, they can often be totally drawn in which means they forget about the stresses of their daily lives. The less stress people have, the healthier they can be. They can also feel a sense of pride of joy when beating a difficult level. So by working in the industry, I can help reduce stress people have all around the world. I’ve already completed my first step and gotten an associate’s degree in information technology. Now I am on my way to earning a bachelor’s degree in the same field. I plan to work during and after school to gain experience then move to Austin, TX where there are a lot of video games companies. I am determined and passionate to do what it takes to succeed and get my dream job.
