Just change your eyes!!! This means if you just see a fan you can only see outside the fan, but if you start seeing what is in the fan and how it works-- if you start see in this manner you will create an engineering vision...and you will have interesting and challenging life.

When you get to college, surround yourself with people who have different strengths and weaknesses than yourself and learn from each other. Keep in mind that you can always change your mind. College is a time to try different things, and if one of the things you want to try is engineering, then GO FOR IT. The engineering field needs all types.
