I was one of the lucky ones. Not because I had a supportive family or a nice house or great friends, but because I have always known what I wanted to do with my life. The path to my goal may have faded or changed along the way, but the end result has always remained the same. It is my dream to be a clinical psychologist and I will stop at nothing to achieve this. I have seen what one’s own mind can do to them and I want to be the person who not only has the education to help them in any means possible, but the compassion as well. I would love to specialize in patients suffering from substance abuse from witnessing loved ones suffer from the same exact thing.
As a wise person once said, if you love what you are doing you will never work a day in your life. This is the direction I want to go with myself. People say that money makes the world go round, but I would rather sacrifice along the way than be unfulfilled. My job will be to save people who have become captives of the own catacombs of their minds. I will stop at nothing to save the people who reach out to me and those I come across in my journey. My only hope is that I can live comfortably to focus on those who need me the most: my future patients.
