"I am very passionate about technology and engineering. Over the past four years I have invested a significant amount of my time studying and exploring programming and engineering. I have participated in programming, wood and metal working, auto shop, CAD, and welding. I plan on continuing to develop these skills at a university this year. I wish to study computer engineering. I hope to apply this degree in a job where I can be a part of the most important inventions in the future. My involvement in the computer technology Sterling Scholar will give me a great start on achieving my goals."
