To learn and teach what you’ve learned is a great thing, That is what I do. Through my study as a mechanical engineering student, and then working as a mechanical engineer I got used to learn new things daily and acquire new skills quickly, and I find great pleasure teaching what I’ve learned to others to benefit from.
