My passion in life is to assist and interact with people whenever there is an opportunity. Nothing brings me more joy than providing an ear for those who need someone to talk to. At Florida State University I plan to take classes involving social psychology and behavior analysis in order to become a social worker.
After successfully graduating at FSU my first step will be to partner with an existing firm of social workers. With partners, I will be able to fully understand what it takes to operate a practice in order to eventually set up my own office. My ultimate goal is to run my own business in which I aid those who need assistance in varying states in their life.
For some, nothing is harder than to openly discuss problems or complications in life. I want to be the person that people can freely discuss their problems with. I want to be that person who provides comfort and guidance in a time of need. I want to be that person who you would feel comfortable talking to. I want to be the person who drastically affects people within the community.
