If you think you're interested in doing something, look for opportunities to take part in conferences, events etc. that are related to it. Just show up even if you're not 100% sure about it. Those little events, interactions you have with people could help shape your future. Just take action, do something, don't get stuck in your head thinking about it over and over again. Want to do it? Say 5-4-3-2-1 and GO TAKE ACTION #5secondrule ...I used the 5 second rule to make that phone call that inspired me to do the course that I'm doing now. ❣At age 14 I attended a STEM event at #schlumberger and thought I wanted to be a Mechanical Engineer
❣ At age 17 I attended an Engineering Our Future Conference by myself and was inspired to do Civil Engineering. ❣A few months later I phoned MWL Consulting Engineers asking for work experience, fell in love with Structural Engineering. ❣A few months later I did work experience at #arup and confirmed my love for structures.
❣Afterwards I applied for a Nuffield Placement and was successfully granted a place but due to skin conditions AND also lack of belief that I could complete it, I decided not to accept the offer.
❣I then applied for Work+ apprenticeship and was offered by 2 companies, I thought I would take that path but after attending the #ice G&S #conference, something made me change my mind and now here I am studying Structural Engineering with Architecture. If I hadn't attended those events maybe I would've chosen different paths, but I am happy with the path I have chosen, although it may be challenging, it will be worth it.
