If I could earn a living by doing what I love most, it would be helping children who have been raped, neglected, abandoned, etc. The summer of 2014, I was granted the opportunity to intern with Youth Villages in Memphis, Tennessee. As an intern, my duties were to counsel, process, and be a positive role model to young girls between the ages of 11-14 that have been trafficked, sexually inappropriate, aggressive, neglected, suicidal, and homicidal. This opportunity was a huge eye opener for me because it made me realize that I was born to be in the psychology field. By me becoming a clinical psychologist, I can implement everything that I have learned in my undergraduate classes. And most importantly, my experiences that I have endured will interning at Youth Villages and in life. I believe that if I can just positively affect the lives of the children that I come across, then my job has been done. The specific goals that I would set to make my dream become a reality includes me continuing my education in graduate school and obtaining my master’s degree, continuing extensive research, and never giving up. Hard work, persistence, and determination are vital necessities in order for me to reach my goals.
