as a high school student, several interests and challenges were in mind that made me think critically to choose. Looking at which field I am excellent at, what job I am looking for, how important what I have to choose with regard to the society, and how many years will it takes to achieve this goal. In 2013, a year I call it the most important period of changing, I graduated from high school with no answers to those questions. I tried to give myself time to decide. Running out of time, I had to find a job to collect some money and go on from there.
It was not easy to find a job with having only a high school certificate since the choices are limited.??????I remember applying to restaurants, small business companies, hospitals, and even though as a driver. The first two months from graduation were really hard for me and kind of disappointing. However, life isn’t always rough, nor easy.
Fortunately, I had the chance and I was really thankful for that moment. My job was simply a front disk helper in one of the smallest companies in my country. Arranging files, helping those who have questions, and encountering different kind of people triggered me to rethink about my future job. Four months later, I had enough money to married, buy a car, and or travel somewhere, but those question regarding which major I will choose keep bothering me almost every single day. Indeed, there has to be an answer.?The moment I decided to choose which way I am going to, I had to study my plan and make my priorities. One of the most reasons that cause me to choose “Civil Engineering” is how this field important and flexible in finding a job right away.
In addition, how much I am going to earn in terms of experience, money, and position promotion. Even though I decided, there still some issues regarding where and when I have to start studying.????Having a job isn’t that easy where I came from. In fact, that wasn’t my issue at that time rather resigning from the job was. Since I became one of the most responsible persons in my family, I had to ask my father to tell him that I finally decided to complete my education in the United States of America.
“Son, I am really glad that you realized your goal and I hope you will achieve it soon. It is really challenge to try new experience since you will be going out of the country which is not that easy, but I know that you can do it” my father said. Those words were the most encouraging factors to help me go on and attain my goal. Six months later, I resigned from my job, and step forwards my decision, with great hope that I will achieve my goal as soon as possible.
