A medically certified counselor would be my ideal way to earn a living and contribute to humanity. My mark would be contributing to humanitarian efforts. Creating literary works would be my way to impact future generations.

Counseling is my ideal career. I would have a degree in biotechnology to support my counseling for extreme cases. My reason being a description in Deepak Chopra and Rudolph E. Tanzi’s book, Super Brain, where he identifies a California university doctor who performs light therapy on the brain to assist with combating depression. I would solely direct my employable skills to non-profit organizations. Traveling abroad to impoverish countries would be my main agenda. My skills would assist those countries who’s citizens are crippled by depression, fear, and limited resources – food, education, etc.- to thrive.

Literary contribution would be my way to change the world. The types of works I would publish are non-fiction, articles, and children’s books. To bring about awareness and the clinical impact of the lacking elements to success; I would publish scientific journals, pamphlets, and articles. Enriching youth through career days at school and stories of adventure from my vagabonds is how I would leave my mark on the world. Literature is always seed to enrich minds and encourage activism. The Holocaust survivor, author, and psychologist’s book Man’s Search for Meaning is the legacy I would model my efforts after. He encouraged others during and after the Holocaust in spite of his experiences he may’ve wanted to forget.
