Please limit your response to approximately 300 words.Hi I would just like some constructive criticism on my essay. i'm not the best writer so please be honest :). Also I am at 330 words but i'm having trouble removing unneeded info. Any help is appreciated.There comes a point in one's life when he or she has to make the decision of what career he or she would like to pursue. For most, this is a very difficult and stressful time. For me, I aspired to become an engineer at a young age. As I was growing up, I had many of the traits that most engineers posses. I always liked solving problems, jigsaw puzzles in particular were my favorite, which, I believe, helped develop my problem-solving and patience skills. Math always came easy to me and was my favorite subject throughout most of school years. I was very innovative especially when it came to constructing things that I enjoyed at the time. For example, when I was twelve I developed an interest for slingshots, I wanted to get one but my parents believed that it was too dangerous for a twelve-year old to handle. This didn't stop me however, I watched multiple videos and read many tutorials on how to construct one myself, and after many failed attempts I finally made one out of a tree branch that I carved out and shaped, a exercise band that my mother never found again, a wallet, and a kitchen knife. Even though I felt certain I wanted to enter the engineering field, I didn't know specifically what engineering route I wanted to explore. This all changed, however, when I took chemistry my sophomore year in high school. What started off as being the class that I did other classes homework in, became my favorite class of the day. Learning that the food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink, even emotions like love, hatred is a result of chemical processes, captivated me. This lead to my desire to become a chemical engineer, and after countless hours of research, and numerous presentations on the career I can genuinely say that chemical engineering is my best career option where I can apply the ideas behind chemistry to the principles of engineering.
