Many people have dreams and goals. I have put a lot of thought into my goals throughout my short life and only recently have I found my calling. For example, I want love to minor in music and major in agriculture. I want to attend Fresno State Or Cal. Poly. Once I am finished with high school. My dream job is to become a agriculture computer engineer.
It has always been my goal to be an engineer ever since I can remember. However it hasn't always been a clear choice to become an computer engineer, let alone in a agricultural field. When I first really began to get a clear view of what kind of engineer I was going to be was in the beginning of my sixth grade year.

This career choice followed me until my eighth grade year when I realized becoming a Aerodynamics Engineer took a lot more money and math skill than I could manage even by college. With this new realization, I also realized I never really wanted to be a Aerodynamics Engineer. It was just me getting caught up in a world wind of excitement and wonder and not realizing just how much it took to become something like that. It was soon after this, I decided that instead of an aerodynamics engineer, I'd be a computer technician. As I had always had a knack for electronics, whenever something that ran off of a battery or power source went array, I could always fix it when everyone else's attempts failed. Naturally it seemed like a perfect fit to me to try and major in a...
