If I could make a living doing what I love the most, it would be in the counseling field, which is what I am pursuing my degree in. I would try to change the world by offering my service at an income-based fee and for those that aren’t able to afford it I would offer so many sessions for free.
Although I am looking to purse my degree in counseling with the emphasis on addiction there are many people that aren’t able to get the help they need for both addiction and for mental health. There have been too many people that have slipped through the cracks of society who need help whether it is with addictions or mental health. For me education is key, people need to be educated that addiction is a disease we cannot just turn a blind eye, we need to help those that need the help.
My specific goals to accomplish this is to first and foremost complete my degree, and once I have completed this one I am going to go back and get my masters. By taking these steps it is going to make my dream the reality that is so important to me. I am wanting to start my own practice once I have completed both of my degree programs.
