Parkour and martial arts, mechanics and engineering, these are my skills, these are my career interests, but what I love to do is so much more. What I love doing most is overcoming challenges, challenges that force me to go past my limit, that push me to tackle problems never faced before. No matter what area of expertise it’s in, no matter what obstacles may be in my way, all I need to succeed is the right cause, and changing the world for a better place is the right cause.
Every day, I see a world with problems, but I also see solutions. All I need is a means to those solutions, and I found those means in studying engineering. Through research and innovation in technology, almost every pressing problem the world faces today can be fixed in the most efficient way possible. Through engineering with the purpose to change the world, problems like world hunger and mass genocide may one day become nonexistent. While others give up, and believe there’s nothing that can be done, I continue on, refusing to let my life be guided by such an easy going philosophy.
Concerning my philosophy, helping others has always lead the way. My whole life is built around assisting those in need, it’s the reason I picked engineering as my major in the first place, for what kind of man would I be if I did not try to leave this world better than when I found it?
