I hope to be able to equip myself to get a better understanding of possible ways of making a social change, in my community and abroad. I have faced some challenges in my decision to study abroad one being finances the second being a single parent. I believe this experience is something I can share with my son in hopes of inspiring him to dream big and continue on a path of growth. I believe this experience can also allow me to become more prepared for my professional goal of becoming a college counselor. I look forward in helping college students map out their academic goals, this experience I believe can expose me to the many different cultural groups that I will meet during my career as a college counselor.
I hope to gain a new perspective on life and gain some work experiences. The program that that I applied to was the ISA Study abroad program. I first heard of this program during a study abroad information session during one of my schools honor day. I talked to an ISA recruiter, and the more we talked the more I got interested in studying abroad. When I looked up more information about ISA I

The second Pro is being able to share the expericence of exploring Copenhagen and many other European countries with my DIS classmates, roommates and hallmates. This will help create lifelong connections. I appreciate the current comradeship I experience with my two college roommates and I 'm looking forward to expanding my social network. Perhaps the biggest Con of living in a DIS residential community, will be missing out on the opportunity to develop personal attachments with Danish students who can best teach me about Danish customs and culture.
I have grown through my American Literature job shadow and my college research research that allowed me to take a huge step forward In preparing for college. My job shadow project required me to narrow down my choices to three different choices. When I was looking for a career to do the assignment on, I realized that I don't know what career I would like to pursue once I go to college. After getting suggestions by other students, I did further research on careers such as psychology, Family therapist and auto mechanic.I now know some of the required courses

On a day like this I think to myself what does life have in store for me? Here I’m going to write about what I hope as I begin taking Social Work courses.

I also hope that after graduating Heritage, I find a job so I can save up money and attend a master’s program because college is not cheap. I want to attend Walla Walla University and graduate from there as well, with a Master’s in Social Work.
Interning at DFCS has most certainly impacted my personal, professional, and academic goals. Before my internship, I knew I wanted to pursue my Master of Social Work after graduation and had some ideas about potential careers within the social work realm. My internship with DFCS has truly solidified my desire to pursue an MSW. While I have enjoyed my placement at DFCS, the internship has shown me that I don’t think DFCS is necessarily the agency I would like to work with after graduating with my masters. My work with DFCS (and seeing how many of our clients struggle with substance abuse) has solidified my thoughts that I would like to one day work as a substance abuse and mental health counselor.
