Hi, I am a senior in high school. I have always been interested in science and math, but I'm not sure that means I'm interested in engineering. What are some key traits or things that could signal that engineering is right for me? And also, I feel like since I've taken so much math and science classes throughout high school that I haven't taken the opportunity to explore other classes or careers. How will I know if I'm missing out on a major that I would've really loved because I feel like it's too late for me to take a bunch of random classes to see if I like it.
I also saw that you received your PhD. My dream is to become a doctor, requiring years of schooling and med school. I am torn whether I can handle that much schooling. Did this ever cross your mind? At what point did you decide to commit yourself to over 8+ years of schooling? Do you think that maybe when I go to college, it'll be easier to decide whether I want to go on to get my PhD? Thanks so much!
