I have always had the intense desire to care and look after people from a very young age. I firmly believe that everyone deserves the best quality of life possible and this is what had drawn me to occupational therapy as a career path in the first place. It is so easy to take for granted all the everyday tasks we can do and we seldom consider the effect of not being able to complete them. As an occupational therapist I would be able to make a positive impact on someone’s life and make it possible for them to enjoy their life. I want the opportunity to provide support to people, help them gain independence and watch them grow more confident in their own ability.
Myself, for example, I am a full-time office manager and serve tables on weekends to pay for the extra necessities like food, gas, and clothing. I drive a nice car, live in a nice house, and dress professionally. Those that see me may assume I have plenty of money or come from money, when in reality, I work two jobs for survival and necessity; hence, the working poor. In my case, I am working towards my degree to rise above my financial struggles and gratefully, the only mouth I have to feed is my own. I would not be able to afford to have a child.
Now I am looking forward to furthering my education after high school and taking care of my family the way I always wanted. In final conclusion, being on probation was a bizarre journey. Also, taught me a lot in life from start to end. Which started to show me that my friends weren’t for me, I did thing I regretted, I ended back on probation, and it made me the person I am today. I will never look back at that particular experience.
Many individuals’ love the advices that come with the impressive job title plus the potential pay rise that comes with the impressive job title as well. In all honestly, I would not mind an impressive job title especially if it is in a job field that I really enjoy. My reason is the potential pay rise and the potential option for fast track to move up the ladder that could bring great benefits so I could live comfortably and nicely. Also, to help provide a good comfortable, stable home for my future
My grandmother has always made a point to show how hard work and a good education could propel me to new opportunities and help get me a better life than she had. This instilled work ethic and positivity inspires me to give all that I can every day and to look at situations in a positive and constructive light. Input from my grandparents and parents has shaped my worldview and actions. While my family lives comfortably now, my parents did not have such a lucky life. At a young age, my mom and dad worked to help support their families and to pay or college.
I worked extra hard, I made sure my bills were paid on time. I have learned that I do not have any room for mistakes while living out on my own, especially when I refuse to accept any help. If I was going to do this I wanted to finish it how I started
Most of all I am thankful for my mother. She did not have to immigrate to the United States for me, which makes me appreciate that my future success would be because of her. I must say my experience being in a third world country was not just a vacation but it was a life changing stage that had turned me into a humble, generous, and thankful individual today. Do not get me wrong the first time I found out, I was going to a place like this I thought was God punishing me terribly. Given that, I had to get used to their living conditions, food and seeing what they do just to survive each day has taught me more than my characteristics of the person I am now.
In the end, being able to face my fears head on, I was able to be alone with just my children and I in our own place. It has forced me to be successful in making my own decisions and become confident in them. My success is that I can go to school now, work a part-time job, have help at home with our children and the household duties. It may not seem like much to most but to me overcoming the small fears have led me to believe that I can overcome any obstacle that comes our way, together, as a team. Yes, I went through a difficult divorce at a hard time in life.
Our family had a special bond that you only saw in the movies. We were always around each other not because we had to be, but because we wanted to be. Some of my best memories are from growing up in that small trailer and my amazing memories that I developed there. In fact, never having a private moment gave me the feeling of completeness and love. Unfortunately, change is inevitable and the need for bigger and better things is a constant urge people try to fill.
From not having to do very much living with your parents, fending for yourself 24/7, buying food, and making sure you get up on time. All of these things you have to do for yourself, right? Remember, you could be miles and miles away, but you 'll forever be
