There are many ways of making a living. However, I believe that the best way of making a living is doing what you love most. In my case, it involves engineering. I like to say that I grew up thinking like an engineer. I used to wonder how to carry a bucket of water from one place to another while using the least amount of energy possible. Now, I can’t wait to take my upper division engineering courses to learn the best ways of delivering clean water to different homes. My dream is to work for a civil engineering company and to design a system that would reduce the waste of water across the country and hopefully apply that design to different countries as well.
