What sparked your interest in STEM?:
Not sure. While in high school, I found myself interested in being a pilot on some days, other days I thought I would be a cop, and most other days I thought I would be a neurosurgeon. The human brain has always interested me. And if you are just as confused as I was... don’t worry, you will find your way. Keep exploring... and that is most important. I found my interest in working on medical devices as an engineer. What I found is that from STEM, you could branch out to doing most anything you would like to pursue.
