When did you know you wanted to become an engineer?

I grew up working for my father’s HVAC company, so I always had an interest in engineering. However, when I was in high school I took engineering classes at the Naval Academy's Summer Seminar which helped open my eyes to the different types of engineering I could explore as I entered college.
