Grasping Dreams for the Future : What can I contribute as an Electronics Engineer?
I am an Electronics Engineering Student from Technological Institute of the Philippines-Manila. As a student, there are ups and downs. I fail and I stand again. Failures never define ourselves. It helps us to endure the pain as we seek success. I believe that the future of my country starts with me. As success does not define how much money you earn, it is how you nurture yourself to reach your dreams and how satisfied you are.
As I currently having my On the Job Training in the Department of Science and Technology, which is a government sector, I see great opportunities that can help our country. I also dream to work here and be a part of the project of this sector. One project is that to have a Free WiFi around the Philippines. I find it very interesting because it can help our economy for online markets and access to information for the citizens.
I was also part of the Technopreneurship Seminar by PhilDev. PhilDev's Chairman is Dr. Dado Banatao. From this seminar, it gave me a mind set to become a technopreneur. I plan to start a business when I gained much capital. By having my own business, I can also help others to have a job. I do not want to be an employee forever, as I do not know when the company I work for stop loving me.
It is not yet too late to catch up with the strong countries. We must start now and let everyone to rise up to success.
