If I could earn a living doing what I love most, I would like to be a computer scientist working at a groundbreaking company, such as apple or google, helping in the development of great new technologies that are becoming possible with the increasing discoveries in the field of computers and technology. I could be a part of a group of people that creates the next generation of operating systems, military tools, or personal softwares that make our lives easier and more efficient, leading the world into a more productive era of advanced technology that makes our lives easier and less stressful, allowing for much more to get done. To become a member of these legendary groups, I would start simply, with a high GPA at a college well known for its successful computer science program, and hopefully receive an internship at one of the nation’s leading technological companies. After establishing a good foundation and getting a higher level job there, I would go back to college and attend a graduate school for a Master’s degree in the specific field I would like to be in in order to obtain an even higher level of employment at the company and in order to contribute my specific skills to whatever software or technology we may be working on. With this job secured, I would enjoy my life, doing what I love most, computer science, while maintaining a healthy salary to enjoy the other great curiosities and live a happy, unstressed life.
