I hope to use that degree in the field of process technology as a refinery or a chemical plant operator. Challenging leads to rewarding and there are great rewards to be made in this industry. I'm totally excited about my future. I'm sure there will be hurdles I'll have to clear but I think I can do it and with Exxon's help with the scholarship and that helps me greatly financially to afford to do it.
I decided to study electrical/electronics technology because I have always been curious about how electronic devices worked, not just on the outside but also on the inside. What I love most about being in the electrical/electronics program is all the hands-on projects. I have always been a visual learner and a “try it out” type of person. The program not only tests you on your academic knowledge, but it tests you more on your hands-on capabilities. After graduating from Galveston College, I plan to pursue a bachelor’s degree in computer engineering technology. I don’t know exactly what type of career I will have when I am done with school, but as long as I am working with electronics I will be a happy girl.
