Choose one of your extracurricular or work activities and explain why it has been of value to you. I have always been an out-doorsy type person. Furthermore, there has always been one interest of mine that has only grown stronger throughout the years, from as far back as I can remember. It probably all started with my first Tonka Truck when I was just a little guy. For some reason, I have always enjoyed, or perhaps been enthralled by, heavy equipment and the outdoors. I have always loved walking around in the dirt and mud, climbing up into a huge bulldozer and imagining what it would be like to drive a machine of such magnitude in both size and brute power.
This is why I am so determined to own a land-developing and paving company, because there is something in that fresh air, mixed with the scent of moist earth and a hint of diesel fuel, that brings me back to my childhood when I would climb and play on front-end loaders and bulldozers for hours on end; stomping through the muddy, overturned earth, and loving every second of it. This lifelong interest, although it may seem strange to some, is the number one reason why I am choosing to attend a school of construction to enable myself to live this lifelong dream of waking up early in the morning and driving out to a job site filled with construction and heavy equipment belonging to my very own corporation.
