      I don’t think I *always* knew I wanted to be an engineer, but I think that for all of my life that I remember I’ve been interested in the parts of life/school subjects that contribute to engineering. I always liked maths, science and design technology at school and I liked to know about how things worked and why. I wanted to use the skills and interested that I had to be of some use to the world and help people. They all led me to figure out that engineering was what I wanted to do.

      No. if I say yes, it’s going to be a lie. At some point in my life, I was so confused about what I want to do. it became more clear to me when I was about 14-15, I always liked maths, physics, chemistry and biology, so I knew it’s either going to be medicine or engineering, but at the end I was more attracted to making cool things so I became an engineer
