If I could earn a living doing what I love most, it would be in Computer Science. It would change the world because it requires thinking in both abstract and concrete terms. Computing can be seen everywhere. Nowadays, practically everyone is a computer user and with that, technology will continue to grow and become a huge field. Getting computers to do what you want them to do requires intensive hands-on experience. But computer science can be seen on a higher level, as a science of problem solving. Computer scientists must be adept at modeling and analyzing problems. They must also be able to design solutions and verify that they are correct. Problem solving requires precision, creativity, and careful reasoning. With that, not only will I be able to solve problems people won’t be able to but I will also be able to teach them how to do such tasks. Goals I would set to make that a reality is to get my name known for what I do in some way and once I become known, I would try to start a business for certain needs that people need for their technology.
