Personal Statement For Social Work

1087 Words5 Pages
Social Work-MSW I always received great satisfaction from helping others. I remember at an early age, helping my grandfather with chores that he was no longer able to do for himself. As I got older, my grandfather became more dependent on me. I helped him cook, clean, and made sure he kept her doctor appointments. I truly enjoyed being someone he depended on and confided in, in his last years. I strongly believe that my passion to become a social worker stems from the bravery and comforting nature of being there for my grandfather. My grandmother is a Social Worker now and I always admired and appreciated the genuine work and service she has done, for example, visiting her sickle cell patients on holidays, being able to mentor undergraduates, and the various volunteer opportunities she has done. I feel that I can be an advocate for those who are neglected or abused. I feel that the Master’s in Social Work program would give me the theoretical foundation as well as the intensive training that is necessary to become a successful social worker. I have always known that I wanted to become a Social Worker, advocating for those who needs a voice. I knew that I needed to change my life to achieve the goal that I set myself. I am interested in pursuing my education in obtaining my Master’s in Social Work because I have a strong passion for helping people and I can give back to my community. I have a passion to help others and committed to helping people function the best they can
