I would be affirmative to stand with the view that students should consider only their talents and interests when choosing a field of study. This view aligns optimally with my experience of choosing the major.

I didn’t have any interests or specific skills before matriculating in college. Therefore, during the first year of college studies, majoring in Chemistry and Material Engineering did not trigger me a lot of passions in this major. The major I selected based on my university-entrance score. In the next year, I transferred to Computer Science because of my preference and imagination about the future; the one I prefigured that I would own a job which I will be satisfied with and beloved to do. This transition made me realize that I didn’t want to study Chemistry or Physics continually or do similar work in the future. The milestone decision helped me to find out what I was truly interested in and what I wanted to put passion into.

In conclusion, I think the most important thing in terms of choosing an academic path is to follow my heart to make the decision and then pursue what I want. In addition, doing what I want could engender lots of passions, which could shape me into a better person. If I have no passions, even though there is a high-paid job, it is difficult to do anything well. Furthermore, even though there are few available jobs in our field of study, I think be a person who can’t be supplanted by any else could twist this dilemma, the paucity of unoccupied works.   

This is why I stand for the first view.
