I started off in Highschool with something similar, senior year Land Rover was based out of the Washington DC area. I did a Mechanical Engineering Internship for three months and they hired me after I graduated high school. 3 months in they merged with Aston Martin and Jaguar and moved operations to Mawah, NJ and Irvine. Learned so much and decided to just stick with Computer Science as my major for a more secure career. I loved every minute of the environment.

I'm an engineer by nature, but technology & business by education & trade. I worked my way through college working full time in tech, but have often looked back wishing I would have studied engineering.

That is pretty awesome, I decided to do CS to get into computer security and I am glad I did that route as its non stressful at all and job security is always there. I am low key mad at my parents for not doing the typical asian thing and pushing me into the Med field lol.
