Competition has driven me. I have lived all my life in the small town of Lovell, Wyoming, and there are not much to do in this town. So I did everything I could when I was young, participating in every recreation activity and joining in on everything my older brother and his friends were also doing. As I grew up, I graduated from recreation sports to middle school sports, and then eventually to high school sports. I have been a member of the varsity football, basketball, track, and wrestling teams while in high school. I really want to play football at the next level and am willing to put in the work. I have also been a member of the Lovell High School Student Council and National Honor Society. During my youth, one of the activities I participated in was Boy Scouts of America, and I kept this participation up an earned the rank of Eagle Scout one of the highest honors you can achieve in the scouting program. I feel like it was sort of a blessing to grow up in this town because I was given all these opportunities to excel at what little there was offered me.
This competitive spirit is what I plan to carry over to the degree I will major in. The field I plan to go into is engineering, and the occupation I seek is that of an aerospace engineer. Aerospace engineers design aircrafts and spacecrafts, as well as specializing in fixing high performance vehicles. Aeronautics has always intrigued me ever since I first stepped foot in a plane, and the joy that filled me when taking off was almost breathtaking. I wanted to know why this was and how it happened. So I looked into the science of aircrafts and space travel. The joy I felt is what I want to bring to people, but a new sense of bliss when flying, and not the boring dull lull that is flight itself.
