Advice: “Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do it; and don’t tell yourself you can’t do it. There will definitely be aspects of [engineering] that you will like more and like less. And there will be aspects that will be hard and that will push you to a limit that you think you can’t surpass. But if you like it; if you know that it’s something you want to pursue, don’t let anything get in your way.”
