People around him are becoming engineers as their parents and society want them to be one. However, he isbeing an engineer as he wants to become one. His future goals and endeavors are very important to him. Hedoesn’t want to just be able to say that he graduated college rather achieved his accomplishments as well.Fascinated by the vast jobs robots are able to perform, and the way all these cars around us are designed, he wasconstantly demanding to learn more about how they managed to achieve their functions. His interest wasn’tsatisfied by examining the cars from outside but rather he wanted to know about the intricacies of their structureand design. Not being able to meet the inner complexities of the machines attracted his attention towards the fieldof engineering. Resonating with his ambitious and determined personality, the career of engineering has been setin stone in his mind since the age of six.
People engulf themselves in studies throughout the year, chasing their career. However, this decent geezer hasgot just enough time for his friends, family, and activities. He loves badminton over all other sports. For him,badminton is like a calming game even though he finds himself to be quite good at it. It is actually quite fun to seethe projectile motion of the shuttle coming towards you at an acceleration of 9.81-meters per (second squared),taking wind direction into account and accordingly moving your hand to strike it. Including extra-curricularactivities alongside school work has enabled him to shape into a well-rounded individual rather than a book-worm.Writing has always been a challenge for him.
Understanding complicated literature sometimes gets the best of himbut he has learned through his involvement in sports that quitting never feels as good as conquering your ownfears.Inner self is like a disk of a sunflower; the characteristics and extensions of the head being the petals around it.Pluck out the petals and you are left bare, with no representation of who you are as a whole. This is why he paysheed to the inner self and lets his beliefs harmonize his instincts. He is a paradox.
He is both a product of hisimagination and reality; he is what meets the eye yet also what he aspires and desires to be. He is me.
