Growing up, my big brother was a major influence on me regarding computers and taught me how to use Microsoft Office applications and the web. I have always had a curious mind and I love learning how things function and I knew computers were something I wanted to learn more about and even taught myself how to use HTML coding for websites. At the moment I am studying computer system engineering and even though I have never done any programming prior to starting this course, I am really enjoying coding and I can see myself pursuing a career in computing and creating applications and software’s that help people in a real way that has a positive impact.
I’m planning to study computer science in the university next year because I really want to learn how to code and I think the careers possibilities are endless with a computer science degree. One of the main jobs I always thought I would be doing after my degree is to be a Software engineering.

Like any job, the negative aspects of being a Software engineering are the highly demanding and competitive work environment and stay current with evolving technology. On the other hand, the positive aspects can be very rewarding because it can help save natural resources and improve the human condition not to mention the great pay. Possible difficulties I may face in this career path is demanding over 40 hours a week which can be difficult to balance with family life in the future.
I have always loved Database applications and I think I like to pursue a career as being Database Administrator like my sister who encourages me to follow my passion. Database administrators (DBAs) are employees who work with technology, using specialized types of software to store and organize a company’s data. This could include a variety of information, from confidential financial numbers, to payroll data, to customer shipping records. A DBA makes sure that data is available to users, and that it’s kept secure from unauthorized access or accidental loss or corruption.
