    Future Interests

    I plan to make my community and the world better after college, through my job and my future chemical engineering degree. At Georgia Tech, I plan to pursue an education that will enlighten me in energy and engineering. I want to use what I learn and go into renewable energy sources and working on making the world more sustainable energy wise. Currently we are destroying our world through global warming, without much regard. There is call for change, however the efforts made are somewhat minimal in the grand scheme of things. I want to use what I learn and push to greater heights. I want the world to run off of at least 75% renewable energy, and currently we aren’t even scratching the surface of these numbers. Countries continue to pump more and more pollution into the atmosphere and the effort to make change is little. I want to better the community and the world by contributing my life to the goal of making the world more sustainable. I want my kids to be able to have kids and so after that, and currently with the pace of pollution and global warming, we are destroying our future generations. My job will be to make the world run off clean energy, I want every car to be electric, all power plants to be renewable. With chemical engineering, I will have the knowledge to make electrical chemical processes, and find renewable sources of energy through them. I want to better the community by bettering the whole world. The biggest threat to our futures isn’t war or disease, it’s global warming and resource management. These are my plans for the future, and I hope to make a true difference after college. Currently I help my community through volunteer work and training. I am a big believer in being fit, and do my best to bring that mentality to the people who live near me. From hosting football games at parks, to getting my friends in the gym, I support my community by keeping them active and fit. Being active is very important to me as it has been shown to increase life expectancy by large amounts. I always volunteer to help parents with kids and keeping them active. I sure do love capture the flag with the youngins. This is how I impact my community now, however my future is full of opportunity. I believe with my degree and some motivation, I can be the one that brings the world to true sustainable energy. Not only helping my small community, but helping the whole world.
