George R.

My name is George and I am 18. I live with my mom and 3 brothers. I want to be an engineer. I am interested in knowing how machines work, so I think I want to study mechanical engineering. No one in my family has gone to college, and I hope to be the first. I would love to get into M.I.T. but I am also looking at Boston University and Cooper Union. I have never been to New York, but I think it is somewhere I would like to live after I finish school.
