My dream is to become a Speech Pathologist at a medical center for children. My love of learning has stemmed at a young age and this, along with my current education at the University of California Riverside in Linguistics, will get me a part of the way there. To become a therapist in communication and speech, one must have an undergraduate background of linguistics, and with that, the components of different patterns of speech in any given language. By taking classes on subject topics like, for example, Neurolinguistics, a class that explains how speech and communication of a language is processed in the mind and throughout the human body, I have opened up the realm of possibilities. It is a rarity when those in the medical field help patients who are suffering from a deeper form of injury that affects communication and that could only be aided by those therapists who are specifically trained to relieve those who have suffered these sorts of brain trumas. By continuing my undergraduate work, and furthering my education in speech pathology, which would include four more years of graduate work in the field, I would be a wonderful asset to this domain of study and practice. Mainly, I would love to help those children who are just as talented and significant as others and just happen to suffer from spech or communication impediments. I would do this so that they may go and add positive capabilities to our society. With my career in helping children who are suffering from any communication impediment, or speech pattern that could otherwise have them viewed as less than capable, I would be able to give a whole generation of children and families hope that they too can triumph in the world.
