I am a firm believer in the saying “if you love your job, you will never work a day in your life.” There is no duty more rewarding and self fulfilling than healing people. Our abilities to think clearly, use our muscles, and not live in pain are not guaranteed every day. We can lose these privileges in a heart beat. When someone is stripped of their ability to operate on their own, they may become depressed and begin to think of their life as pointless. My dream job would be to become a rehabilitation therapist and trainer. I want to give back to the people their meaning of life. To see someone come to you with no hope whatsoever, and to walk away with drive and determination to continue a successful life would be the ultimate reward any job could offer. Nothing compares to seeing the grateful faces of people that you help. I would absolutely love this job and I am not far behind on getting there. I want to study kinesiology and business to possibly end up owning my own rehabilitation facility. As a community college student enrolled in twenty two units and graduating in only one semester, I thoroughly know I have what it takes to get to where I want to be.
