I even designed a site for a local animal kennel. When I got accepted to the University of Florida I choose electrical engineering as my major because I felt like that was the closest thing to the kind of work that I was doing in high school. After I started to take electrical engineering specific classes, such as circuits, I was starting to lose interest and my grades were suffering. I wanted to be able to see visually the work that I was doing and I did not feel like I was getting it from electrical engineering. During one of my semesters I took a statics class as a technical elective and loved it. For the first time, I felt that I was able to visualize how the material I learned was applied to real-world applications. Because of this, I switched majors to mechanical and aerospace engineering, my grades improved, and I have never been happier. I am fortunate to be pursuing degrees in both mechanical and aerospace engineering, where I have developed a particular passion for classes in which I learned about structures and had the opportunity to take part in CAD modeling and finite element analysis.
