My future career.
My major has changed a little bit since I started college, but it has been always on the same path. I first enrolled in Electromechanical Engineering in the Dominican Republic, but I mainly took math and science requirements courses before deeply entering into the major. I moved to the USA and enrolled in an Associate in Electronics Technology Engineer at Bronx Community College (Wich was the only career-related to what I knew at the moment). Right now, I am majoring in Electrical Engineering at City College of New York, and I can say 100 percent sure that I love Electronics. I love to learn how to build up things, I love to see the behavior of certain electronics components and how all together can do something bigger (Even a small thing like an iPhone changer is full of these small components). I do not see myself at a specific job or doing a specific thing. I feel that I have so much to learn and I want to work in so many things.
When I first started my focus was only math, but now it is electronic. Maybe because I come from a society that seems wrong for me to be studying this career, I never thought about working in the electrical/electronic field before. I want to work in a plant station or work for the MTA, I want to work in a place where I know I will learn something new and fascinating about electronics. I used to think that this is a male career and that it was inappropriate for me to be working with men, but no. There is no such thing as a male/female career or profession. I know that wherever I’ll work in the future I’ll be surrounded by a male company, but I hope that it doesn’t create any barrier between me and my search for knowledge.
