Vote for Victoria: 5

For my entire life I’ve always wanted to make a difference in a significant way. By the time I was five I went from wanting to be a Doctor to wanting to become a Teacher. By age 10 I wanted to be a Veterinarian, Police Officer, and even a Service Member for one of our Country’s armed forces. I knew I always wanted to help others and change at least one person’s life for the better. It wasn’t until the summer after I graduated high school that I realized that if I could make a living doing what I love, I would much rather become a Pediatric Occupational Therapist. My job as a Pediatric Occupational Therapist would be to help children with various disorders gain skills that will allow them to become more independent individuals in the future. I believe that no matter what type of disabilities a child can have, he or she has the right to a bright and beautiful future. As of right now I am a psychology major at Rutgers University-Camden Campus in Camden, New Jersey. After I graduate with my undergraduate degree I plan to attend either The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey or Jefferson University to earn my Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy. From there my dream would to work for Nemour’s Alfred I. DuPont’s hospital for children in Wilmington, Delaware.
