I want to become a counselor or a social worker because I have an urge to help out in any way I can. I want to live my life knowing that my acts in life could hopefully make someone’s life a little bit better. Making a difference in someone’s life is something I want to do because when someone made a difference in my life, it was one of the most generous and loving favors that I could have received. After I have my career chosen, I plan to buy my own house. I know that I will have to work hard and save a lot of money, but that is why it is my other long term goal.
Ethical Leadership . I want to make a difference in the world. To be able to see, create and do something to help improve the lives of others has always been a vision of mine. To be able to help individuals empower and enrich their lives through education and a social service program to help them pursue and achieve things, when others told them, no. I currently work as an Independent Living Skills worker in direct service helping adults who have mental illness gain independence in their lives.
Since a young age I have been determined to attend college. As a first-generation student, the road to attending a university was not easy, but I have always had a passion or learning and college was something I looked forward to. In high school, I worked very hard to be able to attend a prestigious university taking a rigorous curriculum with AP classes, participating in extracurricular activities, and working a part time job saving up for tuition. Although I was certain I wanted to attend college, I questioned what I wanted to major in and what university would be the right fit. Halfway through my senior year I started to struggle with severe health issues which lead to surgery and a month-long hospital stay While I was at Seattle Children’s
As a young adult, I get asked this question quite often, “why is your college education so important to you?”. Throughout the years I have explained it differently each time as I have matured as an adult. There are probably a million reasons why college education is imperative, but I will narrow it down to the top three most important reasons why college is so important to me. The number one reason my college education is so necessary to me is because I am blessed with the opportunity to be a role model for my child. Another reason why college education is important to me is because it opens a whole new world of opportunities and experiences in life, I want to leave myself with many options when it comes to life choices.
I have had years of therapy to where I believe that working with this population will affect me negatively. Granted anything could trigger that trauma that I experienced, but I believe that the tools I was given in therapy can help me overcome any negative emotions or actions. My goal is to provide justice and the tools to heal to children who have experienced the
Stability is something I want in my life because I never really had that growing up. This drives me to work hard to achieve my goal. Additionally, my past experiences have led me to believe that I would like to become a psychologist or a social worker. I want to help families and children. I want to make a positive impact on people's lives.
I have already gotten to do that a lot through volunteering with National Honor Society. That organization showed me why it is crucial to help your community and also created a love of volunteerism within me. We can always do more though. Throughout my high school years I had the chance of doing a lot of work for my community and now I will get the chance to impact a new one. Since I will be leaving Jacksonville to go to college in Fayetteville, the only thing I can do for my old city is encourage its citizens to continue to better the city.
There is one thing I know for sure: being educated gives you options; I would like to have options in my life. This trend of options as it pertains to education starts early on. For example, a high school senior who has a 4.0 GPA simply has more options for their future than one with a 2.0 GPA. I could barely find a job as a babysitter without a high school diploma. The available job choices for those with limited education is scant.
College has been a dream of mine since I was little. As I grew older I knew the actions I had to take to accomplish my goals. Since I started college I have faced many obstacles but that was more of a reason to continue pushing myself and not give up. Many people in my life that I look up to are the reason why am here today accomplishing my career. What led me to college was high school, my mother and my family members; they had amazing advice to share with me.
Jackie Robinson once said that "a life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives". As a child, I knew that my purpose in life was to be in a profession where I would make a positive impact on other people 's lives. I sustained that belief as I engaged in various community service projects and volunteer work. As I became older, I decided that I wanted to work in a field that combined health care and social justice. Public Health is the right field for me because I wholeheartedly believe in its mission.
Then there are those providers who simply do it as a business and for the money. Most of my Foster children were either children I knew or family members, so my investment in their lives was truly base on love and caring for the well-being of the child. I think in the Foster Care System a lot more emphasis need to be placed on plays and the children
My career goal is to become a lawyer in the Juvenile Court System, my goal is to be able to help children in anyway I can. I feel that children are always misunderstood and that all they need is a little bit of guidance to be able help them. Another one of my goals is to take care of foster children, I want to be help take care of them. I have a lot of aspirations, it helps that I have a very big heart and an outgoing spirit. I love helping people, but I feel that I can help children more with the way of life and show them that they should never give up and that someone will always be there to cheer them on even if they fall and with hopefully working Juvenile Court that I would be able to give young children in trouble a better option and
By the time in middle school, Mr. Bass became my mentor. Through his guidance, I develop a more appreciative perspective on the struggles that my mother went through to provide for me. He knew my passion was to help others, so he enlightened me about the concept of capacity building. At my age, I thought it was amazing to have people skills. Together with Community Action for Teens, they showed me that there is more to life than academics through community service and leadership skills.
My respectable future is slowing sneaking up on me and I have to be prepared. I have strived for satisfactory grades and an abundant of community service hours to do so. The career path that I have chosen for myself is Forensic Anthropology, which has always fascinated me. This career is obviously not easy to achieve, but I believe with the right determination and work/study ethic, I can potentially flourish in my future education. I plan to attend community college for two years, and then move on to a 4 year university to work on my degree.
Community service or volunteering hours is a need for every high school student to be eligible to attend college. It is an opportunity that is given to change people 's lives, including yours. Volunteering is like a win-win situation where you feel good to achieve more knowledge and others feel good because they are getting helped. Although it may be considered unpaid work volunteering can also be a great way to explore, or gain experience for your new job or career especially for me since I want to be a doctor. People need attention elders for example, do not get that many visitors at care centers.
