Here Is How I Decided My Major! | Campus Tour 2019

Let's, uh, let's go towards the student center, and I'll tell you guys a little about me and my story. I've always been into planes my entire life, like airplanes and stuff. I was never really an extracurricular student because, like nothing else, interested me out of them Planes like I really like planes a lot. I've always been liking math and science because math and science has always been a good challenge. So they finally came where I was talking to someone, and I told them that, like, math, science and airplanes, and he was like, Oh, good looking too aerospace engineering. Then that was like, from freshman year of high school guys. So I've known my plans since my very beginning high school. If you don't know your planets all good, you'll figure it out once I figured that out, I decided to want to go to this school and brutal it's in the beach. Then I was looking at Georgia Tech because Georgia Tech, as you guys know, is a very worldwide known school. They are the only school in the state of Georgia that offers an aerospace program for Undergo for underground, that is like back. So I try to apply to George back my senior year of high school. Of course, you know, not a lot of people get in. So I told myself, all come to this school making state university and just take my core classes here. I don't have the best u P A. Because, you know it's college is literally not easy. Supposed toe apply to tech after two years of taking my core classes here, but it just came to the point to where, like I was over, stressing myself out, and I just felt like it wasn't really the right thing. So what was I going to do? So when I came to Kate, Kennesaw State, I, uh, I declared a mechanical engineering degree with a minor and aerospace. I care about planes, you know, I care about working with planes and math and science behind that not really like it's just they're not entirely different because technically, aerospace engineering is a branch of mechanical engineering. You know, just I just really want to do something else other than mechanical. So one day I was talking to a friend who's talking about software engineering, and I've never really been like a true programmer. I realize like what software engineering actually is, and it just interested me to pursue it. Basically, software engineering is like, How can I make a software issue? No saying. I also had some realistic conversations myself to truly figure out line primary skill sets because, like guys, I'm not like a theoretical person like I like math and science I do. The thing is, guys like I'm just not theoretical like I'm a strategic. I, like, take theory and apply it so basically yet in in mechanical engineering classes, guys like, if you gotta consider mechanical engineering or any engineering degree, you're going to get a bunch of math and science classes like on ly classes where you study equations, problem songs. I mean, there's just classes are made for certain people, but I mean, I could have tried to do those classes, but I knew my G P A would just sunk a lot. I was like, Okay, this seems like a really good plan because I called the people I know in the aerospace industry to make sure they're wanted in the industry. Engineering is, like, literally, like exponentially growing within these next ten, twenty years. The best part is, there's fists and industries looking for software in here. So I formally decided to stay Kennesaw State and do software engineering with the mining airspace because if I stay here, I'll graduate sooner. I'll even get a high paying job and versus just trying to get to tag with not the best. G P A. The thing about GPS guys is don't ever get caught up in G P a all right, G B doesn't mean everything, okay, you are a person of value. You are a person that is guard is going to look for the best thing you can do for yourself. Because guys, who do you think a job is going to hire a four point as soon it that doesn't talk to anyone all four years and graduates or three point of students that graduates and knows a lot of people in his have two internships. Obviously the three point of student because he's got opportunities. He's had experience versus the four point of seeing that stayed in his room all day. I don't care if you don't like people in general. If you want to succeed in this world, you better talk to people because people are the essence of your success. Every person who talked is a different avenue of opportunities. No matter what it is, it could be, you know, festival concert stuff. It could be anything like so many different people have sown even stories to tell.
