I did not have the experience, knowledge and I dare to say the educational background that may make me feel more comfortable to work with Homeless Families. However, the Program Director of the program gave me the courage and the correct inspiration on how to prepare myself and to learn quickly. Her words during the job interview
I really enjoyed reading your post. When I was trying to decided what I wanted to go to school for I also wanted to be a trauma nurse, but I realized that was not my calling. I originally was going to school for radiology but after a semester I changed my major to criminal justice. I wanted a career that would provide excitement and something different everyday, but also allow me to help others. I wish you the best of luck toward either a trauma nurse or anesthetist, they will both take a lot of work to achieve, but in the end will be so rewarding knowing how many people you are
The thing that I think will be most beneficial to my career as an actuary though is not something that was learned through a class. The most important thing I’ve learned during my time in college has been that reaching out to people for help does not make one weak. In fact, I’d say that the people that are the quickest to acknowledge their weaknesses and seek the assistance they need are the ones that will be the most effective in their careers. Specifically in the actuarial field, it seems that people don’t see the value of using the wisdom of elders. During my last internship, though, I found that people were very ready to help with anything I needed.
The most important thing for me is an enjoyable environment in which my potential for learning can flourish. Coming to UWSP I found myself missing that environment, everything else I found enjoyable except the environment for learning. I need my own space so I could focus in my studies, and sadly it was too late when I finally realized that the dorm life it 's not for me. I was a high honors student in high school and I wish I could transfer that into college, but this semester has been extra hard to keep up with regular hours of studying. Hopefully with the move to UWM could guarantee me a safe and enjoyable place where I can focus on my studies and future.

Engaging with these individuals have taught me how to work collaboratively, collectively, and cohesively as a group member. In social work there is diversity among clients and colleagues and a social worker must know how to adapt in this changing environment. When faced with challenges, I have sought out the support and advice from professors, social workers, and classmates and this has been effective for me. I found that making preconceived notions about others had limited me, but being in this program has given me an opportunity to meet a diverse group of individuals. This opportunity has allowed me to evolve into a better person, but have made lifetime
Having a little knowledge about the law and some laws that are in the country is not going to work and while this job doesn’t necessarily ask for a degree, having knowledge about the law is very important. For this also I plan on taking a small course on law and morality which is a 8 weeks course in the United States. A small course in Equality and diversity will also help me in broadening my mind and gaining more knowledge in the field which will give me more experience. I plan on doing an intership in this summer that will help me gain more experience in event planning which in turn should help me awareness campaigns at work. I also plan on challenging myself in doing research within a strict amount of time.
From personal experiences I am aware and accept that hardships are inevitable in life because adversity is a part of life. When responding positively to my biggest challenges, the qualities of strength, courage, character and perseverance emerged from deep inside me. Every challenge we successfully face serves to strengthen ourselves as people. The reason the journey to college is in my life is because it will allow me to gain responsibility for myself to achieve bigger and better things on my own in the future, also authorizing me to gain insight about myself, and learning social skills with my peers around me. Grades do not determine intelligence, but effort is the biggest key.
Office of Residential Life. My experiences have taught me how to build strong relationships with different groups. In the past, I have explored other options and have since built a clearer vision for my professional goals; as I want to reach my full capacity with an organization I believe in. My abilities are backed by my experiences and knowledge. I assure you that this will allow me to successfully help ensure a safe living environment, where residential students feel welcomed and comfortable with their living arrangements, as we work together to build a strong community and Stockton family.
I want to be able to give the families that want a child and the ones that want to give away their child happiness. I also want to become my own boss because I am a leader and also I want to keep working with children. Honestly, I don't have a plan B because this is something that I want to do so badly it's all that I think about when I get up in the morning and when I go to sleep at night. A degree in Social Work will be amazing because it will further improve my education. I have studied and work really had towards getting the opportunity to study Social Work.
Now, my priorities have changed, so now I can finish what I have started. To better myself will help my future for not just me, but my family as well. I want to have a degree in something that I love doing. I do not want to have just a job. I want to have a career.
