As a child, there were the future doctors, and future lawyers in my class. Everybody in my school had their mind made up, and I’m just sitting there like a broken Volkswagen in the middle of The Autobahn. Till one day, I discovered Investigation Discovery. This may seem cheesy, but watching crime documentaries on that channel is what fueled my passion. I finally realized exactly what I wanted to do: become a criminal psychologist. I love contemplating why a person would do the crimes they committed. This may sound creepier, but I would love to peek inside a killer’s mind and examine what is going on inside of there. Was the crime committed premeditated or “heat of moment” type crime? Is the killer cold-blooded, or psychotic? I enjoy everything a criminal psychologist does. I could change many peoples’ lives by helping solve crimes and examining why it was done so I could prevent future crimes from happening. The possibilities are endless once I become a criminal psychologist. I have to start somewhere though, beginning with Huston-Tillotson University, where I will obtain my bachelors in Psychology. I’ll later obtain my masters and doctorate in Psychology at UT Austin and eventually acquire a criminal psychologist job within the government. This is what I love and want to earn a living doing. It may be slightly different from what many people may want to do, but I plan on becoming a successful criminal psychologist and will do whatever it takes to get there.
