         I would like to be a professional basketball player in the NBA. No I don’t think that this career will require working with computers because you don’t have to do anything dealing with technology. You’ll just have to play basketball. No, but yes at the same time because if i dont make it to the NBA then I will be good at computer coding etc. and my main career goal is to be successful.
         I watched the video about Drew Houston who is the founder of DropBox. I found out that he wanted to make computer games and making vido games. No you do not have to be an adult to be an entrepreneur.
         No there is no connection between the careers that I chose and he chose. No because as a kid you have one big goal that will most likely change overtime but if you’re passionate about it then you will stick with it. No because we don’t know whats in the future. People dreamed of hoverboards in the future and now we have SegWays which is a hoverboard with wheels.

    1. The career that I would like to have would be a Psychiatrist .
    2. I think that being a Psychiatrist will require a computer almost everyday because I will have to have my list of clients, my scheduled meetings for that day, our session discussions, and diagnosis’s. Not only that but if I am referring my clients to a doctor to receive medication or other help, I will need to contact the doctor through email to let them know I am referring a client of mine to them.
    3. Yes I believe this course will help me in reaching my career goals because it will get me more familiar with how a computer works at a young age and will teach me new ways of using a computer. This in turn could steer me toward a new career that I might be more suited for or more interested in.

  13. coding would be helpful to those that would go after a career with computers or science math. i am going into more of a science wildlife more than math like.
