When I was a little kid, there were several different careers I considered for “when I grew up.” I often replied, “Doctor, veterinarian, or scientist,” but the common thread between all my replies was that I wanted to help people, and I still do. My current major is Chemical Engineering. I would say that I now probably have less of an idea of “what I want to be when I grow up,” but I still know that I want to help people.
I want to use my future chemical engineering degree to get involved with medical engineering and develop medical and biological technology to help those with medical problems and diseases. I have always been fascinated by advances in medical technologies. I would love to be able to make a living learning and researching ways of helping people through medicine and medical engineering. This career would combine my love of science with my desire to help others and make a difference. Someone once told me, “I have never worked a day in my life because I love what I do.” I hope to be able to also say this about my career when I finish school and start a job.
