I would be a high school counselor because of the many opportunities I would have to impact someone’s life for the better. In high school I had to overcome the death of my mother and because of my counselor, I was able to find good in all the tragedy that surrounded me and use the hurt and pain I felt as a driving force to make something of myself. My life was changed because of my counselor and I can only hope to do the same so that the students I see will be able to go on in life and achieve all that they wish to. To make this dream a reality, I would get a degree in education and minor in psychology while working in an after school program and volunteering for counselors during the school day. During my time with these counselors I would ensure that I became well rounded by observing and helping students who are finding difficulty in many differing areas such as issues at home, in the classroom, and/or general internal issues. At this point I believe that I will be fully prepared to take on my duties as a high school counselor. Although many might not see a high school counselor as an occupation that could change the world, in my opinion I think that changing the lives of individual can have extensive long term rewards by the good these people will do once they have been impacted by just one meaningful person.
