As we've seen this week, students are no longer passive, accepting whatever is set up for them. They strive to make their voices heard.
Outside of social affairs, this kind of early maturity is valuable as students consider which career to pursue. Awareness of career opportunities in school time is very helpful in shaping their future. So, organisations in the engineering field, for example, are arranging various activities to let secondary students appreciate what the profession has to offer. Should there be one in your school, I encourage you to enrol and see what engineering is.
In my day, such opportunities for early experience in engineering did not exist. It's always good to be well-informed at the beginning.
Plan and work ahead, for the betterment of society and your own career.
