Ever since I was little, I’ve wanted to be a part of a police force, so that maybe one day I could change someone’s life. When I was younger, I watched domestic violence unravel in front of me- whether it was between my Step Father and Mother or between my Mother and I. It was a rough start to my childhood but as I removed myself from that lifestyle and onto a brighter one, I realized how I could change the world around me. By going to school, receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice and going to the Police Academy- my dreams of becoming a police officer will come true. Whether I’m pulling someone over for drinking and driving or arresting someone for domestic violence – either way I’m helping out our society. Even the smallest of gestures can make the biggest impacts on people and our world. Like a domino effect, by bringing people to justice, maybe that will stop more crime from happening.
