College: Why Bother?
Luis Aleman 
 When my dad made the move from El Salvador to the States hebecame an electrician. I, accompanied with a couple of my older friends, would work under my dad’s wing during summer. It was a way of earningmoney and at the same time to learn many useful skills in the electricaltrade. Most of them if not all enjoyed working in the trade and they themselves, some which are married now, became electricians. I on theother hand wasn’t really fascinated by it.

Mr. Walter had initially told us that his buddy took only two years in college to become an x-ray technician and his friend was making more money than he was as a teacher. The idea of rather short schooling and relatively high salaries really caughtmy attention.After this incident, I started to do a ton of research in the medicalfield. I would spend hours on the computer surfing the net trying to collectas much information as I could about careers in the medical field.Radiologic Technology, aka x-ray tech, just kept grabbing my attention outof all of the different careers I discovered.
