I spent most of my childhood living in an orphanage and at the age of 10 I was fortunate to be one of the few to get adopted. I think that having a difficult childhood has taught me to be thankful for everything that I have in my life now. I never imagined myself furthering my education as a college student and today I can proudly say that I am. I am pursuing a degree in psychology in hopes of changing peoples lives for better. My goal in life is just simply to make people smile. After college I am planning to join Peace Corps and volunteer as a psychologist.
