Back in our childhood days out of curiosity, we used to wonder what/who we would be in the near future. Most of us aspire to live a better life, especially those who were born into a difficult situation. I’ve always wanted to be a teacher since I was in grades school. I enjoy seeing people become the best versions of themselves as a result of learning various words of wisdom, as well as those hero educators who demonstrate gratitude when sharing their expertise with students. But as we grow older, we develop other interests in life though I’m afraid of what the future holds for me, we must continue to chase our aspirations.
Moving forward to my final year of high school where I study Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) to pursue an engineering course in college. Then suddenly the pandemic starts to emerged in our land and that was the time for admission to different college programs which I was supposedly applying to BS Civil Engineering as my first choice in my admission form. Unluckily, I did not qualify to the said course and as per guidelines of University when you’re not qualified to your first choice the management putting you the in lined course that’s why I’m here exploring the world of technology of being a student of Computer Engineering.
We need to consider ourselves as a beginner because being a beginner means you care yourself and your dreams. No one can be excellent to their own path unless they’re not focus and learn. Now I’m grateful enough because ULAP.Org gives me this kind of opportunity to embrace and help the young IT aspirants build their own career in technology. Rest assured I will help myself grow and community as well.
Don’t let your struggles in life turn you down but rather step on it and strive your dreams.
