If I could earn a living doing the one thing I love most, it would have to be becoming a social worker. I am very passionate about becoming a social worker and possibly working in a mental clinical setting. What led me to my decision on the choice of field was growing up as a teenager and going through somr very rough times. I struggled with self-harm and thoughts of suicide for many years. I never really had anyone there for me through that bumpy road and I feel like this is something I’m suppose to do help troubled teens or children, be that somebody to listen to all their problems and guide them towards the right path. Becoming a social worker in my heart feels like it would be the best desicion for not only myself but for all those teens and children who have nobody to talk to.
