If I could earn a living doing one thing, it would be meeting others. It might sound a little cliche, but my reasoning is completely honest. There’s nothing I love more than getting to know others. I’m a little shy at first but once I create a respectable relationship with somebody, I can’t stop learning about them. I love playing backyard sports with the kids in our neighborhood and it makes them happy that I acknowledge them since I’m older. I was an athlete so I love seeing children and older kids progress in both sports and life. There are numerous amounts of life lessons that you learn throughout a sports career. I enjoy meeting people that are high in the social ladder and finding something that we have in common. I believe everyone has something in common and once you find out what it is, you can expand that relationship even further. One of the things that I’ve found to enjoy the most is sitting down with elders from around the community and talking about how things have changed. I find those things so interesting to listen to and it captures my attention right from the get-go. Working with others has always sounded rather appealing to me, but it’s getting to know the co-workers that I’m really looking forward to. In the end, my main goal is to not only work my way up the social ladder, but also never forget the people that I met along the way.
