If I could earn a living doing what I love most that would be to become a social worker. As a kid and even now I always liked being the one that people came to when they needed to vent just to be that shoulder they knew they can shed a tear on was and is still fulfilling to me. When I was about 14 years old I watched a movie called “case 39” even though it was horror flick I loved the plot. The main character was a social worker and just the thought of her helping children overcome their own
tragedies (despite the fact that the children would have to go back to that home) was interesting to me. I would like to be the hero that no one was to me growing up; I have been through my own hardship and I do not want to have any child endure those tragic events that I had to go through at such a young age. Your childhood should be the most precious memory to carry with you until your adult years so you can one day have the blessing of giving your child an even better one. Now I have already accomplished one out of many goals and that was to graduate from my high school, the next big step is college and through those four years I hope to graduate with a bachelor’s degree in social work and strap my cap on so that I can be that hero I know I was made to be.
