Hi! My name is Eliza. This year I am leaving the ninth form. The end of school is the beginning of an independent life, the beginning of a more serious examination. In order to pass that very serious exam we must choose the road in life which will help us best to live and work. Each boy and girl has every opportunity to develop his or her mind and use knowledge and education received at school. Some may prefer to work in factories or works, others want to go into construction: to take part in building power stations and new towns. And there is one question that puzzles me greatly. «What I would like to become? » Nowadays there are so many jobs. Every job has its difficulties and challenges. I think that nearly all the professions are very important in life. But to choose the right occupation is very difficult, because we must take into consideration many factors. We must consider our personal taste and our kind of mind. At the same time we must satisfy the requirements of our society and peoples needs in one profession or another. I am really lost among different jobs and occupations. My hobby is painting but I like animals too. My parents say that I am enough intelligent to become a surgeon but I think it is very difficult for a woman, especially if she has children. My grandmother recommends me to become a programmer as I am good at Math and Computer Science.
