Imagine mending many hearts broken by a violence where a loved one is shot out of existence for no reason nor justification, where thirteen bullets are discharged into the upper body and head of a human being reading in bed at two o’clock in the morning.
Imagine a twelve-year-old looking inside the casket where her nineteen-year-old uncle lay lifeless. There were two heavy purple spots on the neck. The goal began here this very day. It was the beginning of an ongoing search about forensic sciences. The path was now clear. The field of study now a passion and a dream being pursued.
As a second year college sophomore from California attending Roosevelt University in Chicago, the direction is to become a forensic psychologist. This is what I would love to do most. I am an independent student seeking the most financial assistance needed to complete my education and goal for this dream of a job. This is a way to reach out to families who have been victims of intense tragedy, hurt and the most profound pain.
Imagine the advancements in the field of forensic sciences, especially forensic psychology, that have opened many avenues to solve complicated and lost cases. The ultimate goal is to a voice to advocate for the victims of such violence.
In my family, the images remain forever in our minds.My vision is to go forward. The world would change, only if human beings, as precious as all are, would be respected and accepted.
