Throughout my life, I’ve always wondered what my purpose in life was, what I was destined to do. And now, I’ve concluded that my calling in life lies in the engineering field. Math has always been my favorite subject in school and was always the part of homework I looked forward to. Furthermore, technology has never failed to fascinate me with their abilities to perform certain functions that make them so convenient and practical today. Whenever I turn on a computer or a fan, my heart always yearns to know how each of these devices work. Sometimes, I would even dismantle broken computers and would study their components, mesmerized by their complicated arrangements of chips and hard drives. Moreover, my dad is an engineer himself. I’ve always wanted to follow the footsteps of my dad, who has served as my role model my entire life and has supported my family for 13 years. With this in mind, not only will a career in the engineering field suit my interests, but it will additionally provide me with a sufficient income. Though I am fully aware of the difficult courses aspiring engineers are required to take in college, all of my doubts and fears are driven away and are replaced with determination and confidence whenever I think of myself working on a mechanical device or designing a machine. In fact, if I can help create a device or machine that revolutionizes a certain aspect of life, I know that I will be completely satisfied and content with myself. Due to these factors, I am certain that an occupation as an engineer would be ideal for me and is my “calling” in life that I am destined to fulfill.
