What career would you like to pursue and why?
My ideal career that I would like to pursue is something in the aerospace and astronautical engineering field. What exactly I will do, I have no idea. Though, ideally, I would like to work somewhere in the space travel industry for Blue Origin, SpaceX or NASA. If that was not the path that I took then I would also be interested in regular aircraft design. If I end up being in the Air Force then all the things that I want to do with engineering could potentially be through government work. I really have no idea right now what exactly I will be doing, but my passion lies with flying. So whatever it is that I do, it will revolve around that.
What do you hope to accomplish in life?
To find my bliss. Something to make me happy and fulfilled in life. Whether that is through some day having a family of my own, or the power of knowledge and education, or maybe through religion or mission work or serving others. I think finding my path that will get me to that point will be difficult, or maybe it will be the path that I take that will be my accomplishment. I really don't have some profound point that I want to get to or something super-specific that I want to accomplish. I just want to do the best I can do in life and enjoy the time that I have with the people I love.
If I could do anything, it would be to ...
Go to space. I first became intrigued with space my freshman year of high school when I listened to some audio files of Carl Sagan speaking, and from that point I was captivated with the vastness of the universe. There is so much out there waiting to be discovered, but there is just as much on Earth. And to be at that divide point and be able to look back at our planet and see everything that we are, but also at the same time to look out into never-ending space and everything that we can be and can know would be the most insane opportunity.
