It is now 6 years that I study in tech. I spent 3 years at Cégep in Computer Science, and I am currently finishing my third year in Software Engineering at the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS). During all these years, I don’t know how many times I have been asked: “What are you going to do when you graduate?“ What do you like about computers? “. I never knew what to answer.
These questions have always scared me because it’s scary when we face the sad reality: I do not know. I do not know what I like about computers. One might almost wonder, but why am I in computer science, if nothing lights me up that much?
Fortunately, I did not often tell myself I was not in my place in tech because of these questions. I always knew that I was feeling good where I was, I was surrounded by good motivating and inspiring people, who help me to go beyond my limits, and that was enough for the moment…
But studies, it ends one day. And after? What am I going to do next?
