    I consider myself a mechanical engineer,

    I have been building robots and competing in robotics competitions for four years. I love doing it, it's my passion. But I have been told that I'm not the engineer I think I am simply because, I am only 15 and female. What do you think?

    I Am a Draftsman

    I last worked for a company that designed foundations for residential homes, and I did metal deck layout for several years before that. Unfortunately the industry is down for the time being, leaving me unemployed.  Of course I am not alone.
