After I got out of high school, I decided to pursue an education in Microsoft Certification, and learn the ins and outs of computer software and hardware, and definitely networking. I was able to earn more than 5 certifications in both Microsoft and Comp Tia. Now, I am studying to become an electrician, and soon I will get my Electrical I Certification. Once my class is over, I plan to work for a local electrician while being enrolled in a 3-5 year Joint Apprenticeship Program. I would say that my knowledge of computers and electrical go hand-in-hand well together. I think that I am making the right choice in my life right now, as I am both determined and knowing that I am following my dreams. It is apparent how my computer skills and knowledge have surely assisted me with my new found passion, and that is Electrical. Less
