Throughout the semester I was given the opportunity to gather information from self-assessment exercises, Strength Finders and the Type Focus assignment to inform myself on different strengths and career goals that I have.

I think it is so important to make goals throughout life so that one day you will be able to achieve each goal that has been made. Some short goals that I have set for myself would include graduating from Auburn University with my Bachelor Degree and continuing my education for Graduate School to pursue my Masters Degree at Auburn University.

I think it is important to build a relationship with my professors because they will be the ones that will write my recommendation letter to apply for Graduate School. By applying each step that I have listed, I hope that I will be able to achieve each goal that I have set.
