When people are asked what their dream career would be, they usually choose jobs where the chances of actually attaining them are one in a million, such as an actor, or singer, an astronaut, or even president. If I could do what I love most, I would pick something that most people would see as a “simplistic” job, I would choose to be a social worker. Social work can be a very broad spectrum, but I would want to work specifically with foster children. Being adopted as a toddler, my heart goes out to the children that have a substantially difficult time finding a family that truly loves them for who they are. Children are precious and the creators of our future, and childhood is the most important time of development for a person. Every person deserves to feel nurtured and loved as a child. I would want to show every child that I worked with that I cared for them and worked relentlessly to find the perfect family for them, so they would know that someone out there wants them and cares for them. My dream career may not change the entire world, but I know I could change the world of each and every child I take care of. I believe before you can see change in the big things of life, you must first change the little things.
