All my life I been a competitive person. Especially, when it comes to making projects, I like being creative and making sure I make a winning project with a lot of creativity. Another thing that I love is math. I have always had a passion for math and numbers, since when I saw little that has been my strongest subject. Also, I had always had the curiosity of how things work. As a child, probably my favorite toy was a screwdriver. Curiously I would unscrew my toys and every part of it to see how they worked. And now as a young adult, I have decided that mechanical engineering is the best career for me, as every aspect of that career matches my personal characteristics.
Mechanical engineering is an outstanding career that is mainly about understanding how things work. “Mechanical engineers design power-producing machines, such as electric generators, internal combustion engines, and steam

“being a wiz in areas like calculus and trigonometry is a major advantage.” (U.S. News & World Report L.P., 2016). In an engineering career, you must be good on math, science, and problem-solving you like it or not, these three things are the basic definition of engineering. That will give you an advantage to get the material you need to learn faster. But obviously for a mechanical engineer you have to have mechanical skills and understand the concept. Additionally, you must also have personal characteristic such as, listening skills, communications skills, and ability to work under pressure. Listing skills and communication skills are very important since most of the time engineers work in groups, you have to have the skills to express your ideas in a way everybody can understand you and listening skills to understand others. Ability to work under pressure is crucial. You must be able to control pressure during tough times and work
