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.

  1. Hi Genesis,
    I admire the fact that although the engineering field is male dominated that you still had the courage to pursue your dreams of embarking into it and it so far being everything you wanted it to be and more. There is nothing more refreshing then a woman who goes after what she wants and enters fields that need more women like Electrical Engineering, STEM and other Math and Science driven professions. Keep going you are on the right track!
