I would become a research chemist, working on the cutting edge of science helping to make the world a better place in some way. My interest currently lies in Nuclear Chemistry and wish to find a way to achieve a great power potential with limited negative side effects to our world.
However the good that could be done by my job goes further than just the work itself. I have three young children that would benefit from the financial gains of this career. They would have a more hands on view of science and thus allow them to believe they can have a future in science. Lastly, a great career would allow me the opportunity to fulfill a dream of becoming a foster parent to children who need the love, stability, and sense of home that they are lacking.
I see my education as an investment in not only my own future, but in the future of everyone I love or someday may come to love. If I can help one person succeed, then I have made the world a better place.
