If I could do what I love the most that would change the world; I would want to be a clinical psychologist in our nation’s military sector. I grew in love with psychology from a young age listening to people’s advice and taking it into consideration, and growing up having friends call me for relationship advice, personal training for strength training, emotional support, and being a shoulder to cry on. This career I chose can change the military world because not only am I doing it as a career as a source of income but as a source of personal growth because I want to sit in a chair and listen to a soldier explain a situation to me, and I give them the advice and sustainability to push forward and let go of that grief. These people risk life for our freedom and the least I can do is mentally prepare and help repair scars that they encounter. My specific goal in this career is to travel the states and as a incoming serviceman or woman, counsel them through their basic training so that they can more easily train through future high pressure and work through personal situations back home, meanwhile becoming a better person all around.
