The Best of Me Now
After i graduate high school i want to attend McMaster University and take a computer engineering course to obtain a degree. My education goals are to get good grades and stay focused in class. I also want to graduate highschool then move onto either college or university or a mix of both. My career goal is to get a good job involving computer technology. I want to achieve these particular goals because they are things i need to improve on and also computer technology is something i like doing and i am good at, so why not make a living off it?
Near the beginning of grade 8 i decided that i wanted to work with computers. I became involved with computers more and spent most of my time working on them. Over time, it became one of things that i was really good at. I decided that this is what i want to do but what job will i have? After doing research and looking at multiple careers, i found that i would be best at computer engineering and that i would enjoy doing it too! I found courses at different colleges and universities that would help me acquire these jobs. My work habits helped me find a career that fits my personality. They guided me to a job that requires the skills that i posses. My strengths directed me to something that i was good at and something i enjoyed doing. To find out more about myself, i assessed my skills and chose different paths. I tested my skills and thought, is this really what i want?
As a result of completing the above procedure, i learned that my skills can be applied to many things. I also have many talents that can be use to help my create a pathway. I used everything i know about myself and the skills that i posses, including work habits and from there i started thinking of the best possible pathway plan. Of course i took into consideration how i work right now and the changes i will make in the future to better myself. I know that i will have to go through many problems and i will have to face them and get through them but i will still succeed because i will persevere.
In relation to the problem statement in step 1, the results of my findings show that i want to pursue a career in computer technology. I will follow my pathway which is to graduate high school and take an engineering course in university or college. My findings show that i do posses the required skills but i need to use them in the right way. If i use my resources and all of my other tools right, i will succeed with my pathways.
