      So many people offer their input on my future college major, many saying there will be no jobs in the future because it is said to be a “dying industry”. I can not wait to prove each and every single one of them wrong. The world of petroleum is so far from a “dying industry” it is unfathomable, what people forget to acknowledge is that petroleum is a vital resource in a plethora of aspects in our daily lives. Petroleum is everywhere, of course it is in the form of gasoline, but many are unaware that petroleum is found in synthetics, plastics, pesticides, perfumes, paint, contact lenses, bandages and the list continues. It is unfathomable to imagine a world that lacks petroleum. It is a core resource that keeps our economy and society running smoothly. The environmental impacts can not be ignored but they certainly should not scare current college students out of wanting to major in an industry that needs intelligent minds so we can continue to further our knowledge and optimize the situations at hand. The importance of petroleum engineering is astronomical, but so are the new generation of students who need to grow in the field and further the exploration of petroleum. These are some of the few reasons that make petroleum engineering a passionate topic of mine. I am not sure where I want to make my mark but as a freshman with zero experience, I want to try absolutely all of it. I desire to get my foot in the door and start learning everything and anything I can. I think it is important to address environmental risks and ways to improve our systems that promote longevity of energy and our resources. We can continue to improve in safety of the oil and natural gas industry with a focus in promoting safely of the environment whilst continuing to improve extraction methods that promote the financial aspects of a company. Continuing to improve and find a balance between financial gain and longevity of the resources and environmental aspects that come into play when drilling and extraction. I have big ambitions for my future, having a managing position in an oil and gas company would be my first choice of making my mark on a company. As a woman, I want normalize females in engineering settings, and make it more common place to see women strive to be in STEM centered industries.
