Tied Runner-Up, Grade 3
My mom is a civil engineer and she inspires me because she finds out about rivers and water and she finds out a way to lead them in a different direction so that it won’t cause a flood. I like that because it will help people be sure their houses won’t be ruined.
I think it is rude when someone says they are a civil engineer and someone else says “you don’t look like a civil engineer”. It doesn’t matter what they look like, but it matters what they can do. I think that is why “I Look Like a Civil Engineer” was started so people will know that.
When I grow up I want to be just like my mom. I want to be like her because she is a great person. I know that we can make a difference!
