"I always wanted to be an engineer, as far as I can remember. I felt I could repair anything in the house, when it broke. I couldn’t, but it motivated me do try harder and pick engineering. I chose Electrical Engineering, as I was confident there were good future and career options. Looking back, I did the right thing by choosing Electrical and Electronics and I do not think I would want to be anything else now.  I love my work today, and I look forward to coming to work every day. I think this is the biggest win I could get from my Degree." ⁠
