As a human being, I believe it is in our best interest not to allow the moments we are given to speak, to outweigh the moments we are given to listen. If I could make a difference by doing what I love, I’d spend the rest of my life listening. My passion is people and their journeys, through failure and triumph. Outreach to those in impoverished and under-represented communities is an attribute I’d like to focus on in my career. I want to provide people with activity to exert positive energy by being perceptible to touch and physical movement as a form of therapy. I’d introduce larger groups facing similar struggles to connect, changing the world by redefining what it means to endure therapeutic release by creating focus groups of those who may relate to one another. Therapy is something not to be hidden, but rather out in the open so one has a whole network of people to turn to when in-need. By creating programs for all different age groups such as after school activities to work on students’ self-esteem, cooking classes for adults who are dealt with grown-up issues, and summer camps for children that face neglect, I will show the world that therapy begins with human connection, and refocusing our energy towards positive, and uplifting activity. By bringing together groups of people who may be working through similar bumps along the road, not only could they turn to me, as a therapist, for help, but each other.
