Why a Civil Engineer

Why a Civil Engineer

As a kid I was always intrigued in how bridges, skyscrapers, and other different structures were created. In addition I was interested in how structures maintain their perfect condition over time. On top of that, I grew up loving math. Every day at school I couldn't wait until it was time for math class. As soon as went to middle school I started to think what I wanted to do for a career. The two main options that immediately came into mind where Architecture and Engineering. Henceforth, in high school I still had problems deciding, but came to the conclusion that Civil Engineering would be the best choice because of its involvement with math and different structures.

Why Am I The Obvious Choice

I'm the obvious choice because of my hard work ethic, determination, leadership, and desire to succeed. In addition, I'm responsible and always do my work with the best of the efforts.
