Please Read and Review.

Since I joined my Elementary science team, my passion for creative problem solving joined with my interest in math and science has continued to inspire and motivate me to pursue an engineering degree. What excites me so much about Engineering is that it encompasses a broad range of disciplines in creative problem solving with math and science. I have developed many skills that will grant me success in the future as a Mechanical Engineer. My passion for creative problem solving, my enthusiasm in math, and my zeal in science has continued to inspire and encourage me to pursue an engineering degree.

I loved math and science since I was a kid and had always wanted to pursue my studies in a field that embraces both disciplines. I have always strived to learn more math and science than expected in school and have always been fascinated in learning how technology works. I was not a child who plays with his toy, rather I was a child more interested in disassembling his toy apart to see how it was made. My first endeavor was the disassembling of my toy car, which I got as a birthday gift. When I stripped and reconvened the car, I was fascinated by the small gears and motors contained within it, and I was surprised by the intricacy contained in this outwardly simple object. Then was when my inner engineer awoke and my thirst for more knowledge kindled a passion for engineering. As I grew up, my passion for science and physics increased. Every time I saw a complicated device or machine, my brain always instinctively goes to work thinking about what its mechanics and internal structure will be like. Under the guidance of my Physics teacher, I was fascinated by the complexity of engine, especially the idea of the internal combustion engine and reaction engine.

Throughout high school I have been heavily involved in extra-curricular activities. I have dedicated many hours in varsity sports, intramural, clubs and a competitive track team. Participating in these extra-curricular activities taught me valuable skills that can only be learned beyond a classroom. Determination, time management, responsibility, communication and team work are examples of the skills I have developed through my extra-curricular experiences.

What could be more powerful than the ability to turn ideas, concepts and theories into realities? To me, being an engineer is not only having a degree, or sharing a passion for solving problems. Being an engineer means accepting our life to improve societies and enhance human progress. The role of an engineer is critical, because an engineer has the duty to push the limits of humanity's practical knowledge.

At the point of applying to college, I desire to walk into a bigger world of science and engineering. In my opinion, engineering is not only a broad discipline which I can apply math and physics into real problems, but also an attitude of perseverance and passion. It has been my dreams and aspirations since childhood to be an engineer who can make a difference, which can facilitate human beings and benefit the world and human life in a mechanical way.

I think:
- realities => reality
- "Throughout high school I have been heavily involved in extra-curricular activities. I have dedicated many hours in varsity sports, intramural, clubs and a competitive track team. Participating in these extra-curricular activities taught me valuable skills that can only be learned beyond a classroom. Determination, time management, responsibility, communication and team work are examples of the skills I have developed through my extra-curricular experiences." => how this relates to the selection of mechanical engineering study? I don't think it's necessary in this essay.
