Growing up in an environment where sights of people starving could not be missed, I developed a habit of never wasting food. But when I saw that same logic going to the dogs with respect to maintaining the place where we live in, it perplexed me. People just throw garbage on the roads and rivers, which are supposed to be holy, without any second thought and the trend does not seem to change in the near future until acted upon.
This initially led me to develop a sense of pity towards our nature. My attitude changed when I realized that nature is not going to get finished no matter what we do to it. It is only us that we have to save.
Living in a city with one of the worst pollution levels in the world, I understood the importance of a clean and sustainable environment pretty early. The fact that innumerable people on the streets are suffering from many diseases which can be prevented by providing them with clean air and water gets on my nerves. How is that even a slight change in temperature results in world catastrophe? How can we build green buildings feasibly?
To try and answer these questions, I first need to understand the system which we currently follow. Civil and environmental engineering is an approach by which I can do this and hope that I can be a part of my dream of a world where technology is in sync with our environment.
Would really appreciate some feedback!!!
If someone could tell me where to add more and give alternatives if something is wrong...
where sights of people starving could not be missed--where I always saw people starving
But when I saw that same logic going to the dogs with respect to maintaining the place where we live in, it perplexed me.--huh?
until acted upon--OMIT
also, your first sentence really does not connect to the rest of your essay
