I will become a Mechanical Engineer by learning good habits and working on the necessary skills at EHOVE. According to Ohio Means Jobs website becoming a Mechanical Engineer requires a Bachelor's degree. I will be able to accomplish a Bachelor’s degree by improving my current habits and work ethic. While in college I will keep up my good habits and work hard for four years.

These skills are needed because of what the job inquires. While working on or designing a product you must pay attention to the smallest or the whole thing could not work.

Mechanical Engineering is a good paying job with lots of benefits. According to Ohio Means Jobs the median salary in Ohio is around $73,010. With a good paying job many items can be purchased for entertainment without a struggle to pay the bills, but only if you spend your money wisely. The more fancy things you have the more bills you will have to pay each month.

Before career day I thought it would be easy to just spend some money and buy a nice vehicle. While I was thinking about how easy it would be I didn't consider the insurance, utilities, and child care. I also didn't think about entertainment and what I would like to do or buy to have fun.
After career day I have realized how hard life actually is. When our parents say no because they are stressed out or just say no, I understand why. They say no because they have too many bills sometimes and are in worry of debt or are stressed out because they might have had a bad day at work trying to make money to pay the bills and be able to buy things.

Donald Trump has a plan to prevent illegal immigrants. “...the country must be protected from the terrorists, drug cartels, insurgents, or suicide bombers lurking on the other side.” We should build a wall because we cannot allow terrorists come into this country and kill thousands of people. What happens after that? We can’t find these terrorists because we have no information about them. They could have went back across the border and into Mexico. If we had a wall they wouldn’t be able to get into country.
Hillary Clinton wants to give free education to illegal immigrants. “If we claim we are for family, then we have to pull together and resolve the outstanding issues around our broken immigration system.” We can be for family without letting illegal immigrants in. When Donald Trump said he wants to Build a wall he never said it would make people move back to mexico and tear apart their families if we build a wall it is going to stop illegal immigrants from flooding into our country and stealing our jobs.
Hillary Clinton is talking about classified information on her own private server.“Government investors say they found classified information in emails from Mrs.Clinton's server.” If Hillary Clinton is allowed to use her own private email server than she could be telling other countries anything. For example she could tell them about a new weapon the U.S. military is testing, and if they find out this information they could beat us to perfecting it and attack us under her presidency.
If Hillary Clinton becomes president of the United States she could possibly leak information to other countries about our new technologies for the military.
