When I was in elementary school, I remember teachers asking students what they wanted to be when they grow up. They would say the typical fireman, police man or doctor. I knew I wanted to be different. I always had a fascination with the weather and how it works. I remember taking out the “Weather Channel” book from the library and always wanted to become a Meteorologist. As I got older I steered away from it because life does have a tendency to take you in different directions. Now that I am an adult, I still want to become a Meteorologist but not for reasons that some people would want to be. I do not want to be on television but I want to be the person who is there watching the storm first hand and seeing what it is doing and how fast it changes. I feel more research should be done to help protect people from horrible storms. I have seen so much destruction from horrible storms in the past that it is a shame that people have lost their lives due to not having enough time. I know there is no way to stop the weather but there has to be more done to protect people and have a better idea of detecting and saving people. I would be willing to risk my own life if it meant saving the lives of others because that is how passionate I feel about this.
