2013 Predoctoral Achievement Award Winner Hanh-Phuc Le Attributes EE Career to Early Curiosity

phuc my_photo Born into a family with no professional engineers, as a little kid I was    always curious why my brother, an accountant, always asked me to get    him a wooden  chair to step on to do electrical work in our house. He once  explained to me  that the wooden chair would help him to be isolated from  the ground and keep  him safe. However, I never really understood how it  worked until I learned  about current, resistance and Ohm's law. This is  the start of my big curiosity into electrical engineering that becomes my field of study.

Curiosity is the best present that one could give to a kid and I don't think this is that difficult to do.
