I love to engage in meaningful conversation, as well as help those whom are less fortunate. My dream job is to become a councilor either for children in the foster care system, adolescents in the juvenile system, or recently decided, to work with returning military Hero’s. I realized that I wanted to become a councilor for these organizations because I want to give those who think no one cares about them or has the patience for them a chance to open up to someone who will listen to them without judgment. Sometimes all people really need is someone with no family or close personal connections nor the ability to punish them for what they say, to talk to. All through high school I was a motivator to injured athletes and now am working towards my degree to make my dream a reality. Not only am I succeeding in school, but I am working at trying to get an internship or volunteer experience to get the ball rolling for what I want to do for the rest of my life. They say you cannot fix everyone, but to me, helping one person at a time become a better person or help someone worry less, I will know I filled my life purpose.
