I hope and pray that one day I am fortunate enough to successfully live out a passion of mine while earning a living. It would be no sweat even if it did not reward me greatly on the financial front, because something that makes me so happy is absolutely worth not being bountiful in a monetary sense. Of course, if I do earn a great amount of wealth, I will distribute it to those hurting and in need—there are countless in this world. I believe I have myriad options as to what I consider my “dream job”, such as being a fashion designer or nurse. But what I know brings me immense joy, is the idea of working as an athletic trainer for a sports team. I love sports, both my parents are in the medical field, and I find people intriguing. This profession gives me ample opportunity to interact with humans and allows me to possibly bring light into lives that may not have been lit otherwise. I am a Christian and, although I try to avoid shoving my beliefs down the throats of those who may not be open to listening, it would be my honor to offer a smile and lend an ear to someone who suffers from personal affliction, sharing the source of joy that way instead. As well as help those with physical injuries, and mentor in injury prevention and healthy lifestyle choices.
