A social worker that I worked with at Chasco Middle School told me a quote she had seen once that read, “Blessed are the cracked, for they let in the light.” After just a year of working in a middle school, I learned two things; one, everyone is cracked, and two, if I could spend the rest of my life doing just one thing it would be helping students find the light within themselves. Next month I will start college at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg where I will be on track to earn a Bachelors degree in Psychology. While in school I plan on making the most of every opportunity presented to me, to help strengthen myself in all areas necessary to do the best in my future career field. I have found my passion in working with students and I truly believe that we have the ability to change their lives. A few weeks before leaving my job at the middle school I received several notes from different students that I had spent time with throughout the year, one of which said, “I am going to miss you so much. You have always been here for me. I always have a smile on my face because of you.” I know from personal experience the difference it can make knowing that you have someone who is there for you and believes in you, and it is an incredible feeling to know that you can make a difference.
