Growing up, I always portrayed the word “work” as a tedious job. However, as I am entering college for the major I am passionate about, I ask myself, “Is work even work when you love what you do?” I have spent many hours in my Godfather’s machine shop since the age of thirteen, programming the machines, and helping the employees with other tasks.
Now, I am living sixty miles from what I call “home”, chasing after a certificate that will hopefully land me my dream job. In ten months, I will once again place my graduation cap on my head, and be turned loose into the real world one last time. My job at that point will be using my skills and passion for machining to change the world.
I hope to make show my appreciation towards the United States military by opening a business of my own that makes prosthetics for military veterans. This will allow me to give back to those who have fought for freedom of our country, and to better the United States citizens’ lives. War veterans often put their lives in danger for the sake of ours, and their efforts frequently go unnoticed. Therefore, I hope to use my passion towards CNC Machining to help the injured out, and truly make a difference in their lives.
