      Believe it or not, no. I never thought I would end up being an engineer. When I left high school (secondary school), my goal was to be either a biologist or an astrophysicist. Engineer was not really an interest back then. I only became interested in becoming an Engineer in the last two years. I took a tissue engineering class, and became very interested in going into that field. I also wanted to help people suffering from a disease or other healthcare problem. I wanted to help by designing medical devices that would help people heal faster or a device that would ease their pain/suffering. This is the major reason I wanted to be an Engineer. 🙂
