If I could earn a living doing what I love the most it would be giving back to lost, recently incarcerated, impoverished children and adolescents, particularly in the inner city. I would open several residential facilities throughout America to accommodate these types of individuals, providing them with a nice place to live, temporarily, well cooked meals, educational curriculum, and psychological programs. There are too many young people who are misguided, that become a victim of their environment, resulting in them becoming underdeveloped, abused, misused, incarcerated, and even dead the majority of the time. Many of our young women don’t get the attention and nurturing they need to become productive, wholesome, educated women that can not only function but survive in society, therefore, they fall victim to different elements in the street. With a BSN degree and minor in Psychology, I will have the educational tools to help these individuals, not just medically but mentally, not to mention that I was raised around the type of girls I describe in this essay and aspire to help. This would be my way of giving back and would provide me so much joy and sense of fulfillment. What good am I doing on earth and in society, if I don’t try and help others once I’m in a position to do so? I would hire educational and life skill instructors, residential psychologists, and develop a mentorship program. I was uncertain about Gods calling for me for years but I finally figured it out.
