Exercising every day, learning about human behavior, studying martial arts, and reading statistics are among the many things I am doing to become an FBI Profiler. This world needs people who are about to catch criminals, not just by using evidence and clues, but by predicting behavior and psychology. Being a profiler will allow me an extra tool to help me catch murderers and rapists who otherwise may not be caught using traditional forensics, as forensics can be easily mismatched and behavior is generally the same for all people of a certain type. While I may not be able to prevent a murderer from committing murder in the first place, I will be able to prevent the murderer from continuing his hobby and give some peace to others. Keeping myself fit and my brain sharp are among the many things I have to do to perform this while I also have to graduate college with a four-year degree to even apply. I would also have to meet their requirement of having 20/20 vision in one eye and at least a 20/40 vision in the other. However, that can all be done before their age cut-off of thirty-seven.
