Ever since I was a young kid I have always been interested with aircraft. I

was so curious of how airplane's fly. I remember taking my toys apart to see

how it works. As a kid I wanted to go to the airport to watch the airplanes

land and fly and pondered how this happens. Other kids wanted to go to the

amusement places. As I grew older I became more and more interested in

aircraft and the technology behind it. I always involved myself with aviation

early on. I read books and magazines on aviation, took museum tours, built

model airplanes. When I was younger my father would take me to aircraft

repair facilities where I would watch in great fascination. In my teens, went

up to the military bases and befriended many soldiers involved with aircraft

and asked them numerous questions. I got to meet many aeronautics engineers

and borrowed their old textbooks and read them till the wee hours of the

morning. As technology improved with information superhighway, I logged on

the web. Stayed up for hours and hours searching through web pages and web

pages of information about aircraft and technology.

I started my elementary school in the Philippines, then we moved to U.S. and

continued my high school education and graduated. Enrolled at the CCSF to

pursue my college education and now I am in the 2nd year in CCSF taking

aeronautics. My goal now is to obtain my AS degree from the City College of

San Francisco (CCSF) so I can transfer to a University and get a Bachelors

degree and to continue for my Masters degree in Aeronautics Engineering. I

will strive hard to reach the peak level of my career which is a Professor

and hopefully to be an aeronautic professor so...
