Helping others has always made me feel happy. It’s what I love doing the most. Which has led to my decision to pursue a degree in psychology with the goal of obtaining a doctorate and hopefully become a professional psychologist. Becoming a professional psychologist will allow me to not “change the world” in the broader sense of the phrase, but to possibly make someone’s personal world a little better. Which is just fine because it still makes a difference in the world.
To come back to the reality of my situation, even though I have dreams of becoming a psychologist, it isn’t going to occur overnight. There are plans I still have to make and there are goals I have to achieve. Before, I had mentioned the intent to procure a doctoral degree. Which I definitely aspire to earn. However, that is more of a long term goal and can be focused on later down my career path. As of right now, my main goals is to make it through my undergraduate studies. In doing so, I will be able to move on to graduate school and hopefully a doctoral program. Therefore making my dream become a reality.
