For me, doing what I love most is not an option, but an obligation that I am grateful for. After perusing an accounting degree and earning my dream internship as an assistant accountant, I realized that I didn’t have a passion for accounting. What I truly loved was helping others and more specifically, helping women who endured the same physical and verbal abuse I did as a child. It’s simple for strong women to push aside the deep pain that an abuser has caused them. They may appear “put-together” to the outside world. But, in actuality, the sadness they feel is always lingering beneath the surface and will inevitably negatively manifest in their lives. To pursue my dream of helping women who are victims of abuse, I am learning Spanish. I would like to learn many languages to be able to help all women, regardless of nationality. I plan to join women’s rights groups and eventually start a non-profit charity that offers women and their children a safe haven. The charity would educate young women on the first signs of abuse and how to handle them. It is difficult for the feminist to express that she is hurt and feeling weak, and the vast number of secretly victimized women among us is unknown. By furthering my dream, I want to help women who are too ashamed to admit they were victims and give them confidence and a safe place to express themselves so they can be freed.
