Ever since I can remember I have loved wildlife and everything concerning the natural world. In that regard you could already say that I am already living, and working in my dream. As I grew older my interests started to diverge a little and I became very interested in working with people as well. That interest in people is what motivated me to study Counseling Psychology at Drexel University.
Every weekend I work as a Conservation Educator at the Philadelphia Zoo, I’ve been working at the zoo for nearly six years. I would consider what I do now my dream job. I love wildlife, and being a teacher at the zoo has given me the ability to share my passion with so many people. Teaching others about nature conservation gives me the rare ability to say, with complete honesty: “I teach kids how to save the world”.
Through the Cooperative learning program at Drexel, I have been hired as an assistant guidance counselor at Constitution High school. This is without a doubt a dream job of mine as it gives me the chance to help hundreds of adolescents with their problems, whether academic, social, or domestic every day.
Along with teaching kids to save the world, I can help kids to save their own lives. Furthering my education is the best way to help myself continue to help others, this is my dream. Being able to do what I do now for the rest of my life would be heaven.
