I joined robotics because many of my friends were in it, and they told me it was a great experience. Also, I thought it would challenge me personally. I was a little lost my first year, but I soon figured out what robotics meant. My hidden talents started to reveal themselves. By my second year, I had developed many skills I had never seen before. Currently, I am the CEO of team 4980, and a lead in programming. My dedication to robotics has opened many new doors for my future, and taught me valuable lessons and skills I will use forever.
