Lani: I was helping for someone’s project for COMM 245; I was in the video lab, in the studio. I was on campus and decided to contact everyone I knew who comes to the school. I remember I sent out a snap saying guys I think there is a shooting, be careful and then I started sending out individual texts to people making sure they were okay, like hey are you good? Stay out of an area. I didn’t know how many people were getting shot. I just knew it’s not good and that we have to be careful. At first, the campus was like we are unsure, just be careful, and then it took some time till I finally got an email that said stay on campus and were held there for about two hours, I just kept recording.

It seems like yesterday when I was in high school trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my future. When I thought about the career I would want to pursue I was having trouble picturing myself in the type of work I would be most satisfied in. Around this same time, I suffered a sports injury and had to receive physical therapy in order to heal. This is what initially got me interested in working in rehab. This, I’m sure, is the way many young people become interested in physical therapy. It clicked for me because a physical therapist was the first career I could picture myself as, no other career choice I could so easily see myself doing. So, after I had this revelation I started to pursue higher education in the health sciences and tried to become more familiar with the rehab environment.

My family gives me all the encouragement I need and are very optimistic about pursuing a higher degree. Unlike myself, my parents did not have the opportunity to attend college.

Through what I consider to have been a very difficult childhood, I developed a love of thinking, and the ideas of how and why the brain works. Between my split households, school, and a constant lose of friends, because of my school, I had to try to find my own way, one way I found to cope was through music. Diving into music can be a very conceptually stimulating thing and after a while I found myself reading psychology books as well. I know my meaning in life is to help treat people with mental illnesses and my top goal is to be a Psychiatrist one day, so I can do just that. Plus I 've always been good at talking and listening so that only increases my desire for this
Alameda County California. I grew up in Oakland, California and went to Franklin Elementary School. When I was in the 5th grade I moved to Hayward California and went to Eldridge Elementary School. As a transfer student, I felt different from everyone else and my learning abilities were different.

What was your own middle school experience like? What extracurricular activities were you involved in?
I have always been unsure when it comes to a choosing a career for myself. Whether it be a nurse, a doctor, a counselor, or even an engineer, I have never been able to come to a compromise on the “right” career path.

Psychologists see new people everyday and help them find their own reasons to live life to the fullest, help their patients develop coping skills for their unique situations, and work hard to help make
There are many things that I feel have led me to year number two of graduate school pursuing a career as a school counselor. For I while I tried to convince myself that a career in school counseling was not for me and ultimately everything led me here.

Eventually, I realized I wanted to be as passionate about my career as my mother was in her role as a school counselor. On the other hand, I was certain that I was not going to be a school counselor like my mother because
When I was growing up, multiple people questioned me about my future career, and others even pressured me into certain careers. All the influences I have had over time have formed my idea of the perfect occupation, that fits my personality and interests. The careers I have based my future life plans are a pharmacist or a certified registered nurse anesthetist. Both of these careers require a great deal of school and hard work. My decision of these careers was influenced by both of them being within the medical field, and also both focus on helping people. My main interests lie in my math and science classes, which is the reason why both these careers rely heavily on these subjects. My life goal is to achieve the title of one of these distinguished
