They say you die twice. Once, when you take your very last breath, and once when someone says your name for the very last time.

My dream, as many men before me, is to become immortal. Not in the sense that I will never stop breathing, but in that the work I do will never stop helping humanity prosper, innovate, and move forward. I wish to never be forgotten.

It always fascinated me, just how little we know about some things. The “unknown”. I’ve found that the field of study humanity knows the least about is space. This, coupled with how much I love to create and make things lead me to pursue an education in the field of Aerospace Engineering, in hopes that I can create something that helps humanity discover the unknown, and from that, move forward.

To accomplish this, I’ll need a superior education at a recognized school. After or during my education, I hope to use my university’s connections to get an internship with a company or organization working in the field I want to pursue (such as NASA or SpaceX), and use that experience to find a similar career.

Learning, however, is my first goal. It makes sense, seeing as I want to change the world by helping it learn.
