Most if not everyone’s dream is to earn a living doing what they love the most. However, sometimes obstacles keep some people from reaching their career goal. My interest has always been helping people. I was glad to know that there are ways to make a difference. If I could earn a living doing what I love the most, it would be to aid and motivate people by becoming a Speech-Language Pathologist.
Even though people don’t take the time to think about it, speech pathologists do make a difference in the world. Not in an instance, but it all starts in communities, assisting those few people who have speech related disorders. For example, in my community, Salinas California, some people would benefit from having a speech pathologist assist them. Most of the people who live here are not bilingual; therefore, it’s hard for their children to be able to speak in another language as well as those children who have been speaking that language all their life. Some speech pathologists work in schools to support students who have fluency problems. By supporting those who have speech related disorders, there will be more people whose lives were improved.
Helping others, making a difference in their lives is what I enjoy; becoming a speech pathologist is my career goal. I want to make a difference in the world, staring with my community.
