Vote for Kestral: 0

Civil engineering isn’t a glamorous job. You get to work with infrastructure, water and sewer lines, and buildings. Most people don’t even know what your job entails. To me though, civil engineering would allow me to do what I love most which is helping others with math and science. I want to help people in underdeveloped areas by bringing them the basic necessities that most people take for granted such as running water. In order to achieve my dream, I need to graduate from college with a civil engineering degree. I also plan to do internships abroad in Asian, African, or South American countries and become a part of the Engineers Without Borders club. This club would allow me to go out in the world and experience first hand civil engineering projects in remote areas. Another one of my goals is to learn another language in addition to my Spanish and Portuguese so that I could communicate with people in an area to figure out what their specific need is. Becoming a civil engineer and working abroad in developing countries would change the world by changing individual lives. To be able to bring smiles and happiness to others is what I would love to do with my life.
