I have always wanted a career in a field that helps people. I thought well why not help those who are similar to me? I have chronic asthma and it has affected my every day to day life. So my dream job is to be a respiratory therapist. I can better my knowledge and learn how to effectively handle my asthma and then through experience and education I can help those around me. I do not however want to do that for the rest of my life. I want to learn and grow and eventually work my way up to being a health diagnostic and treating practitioner. I am a mother of a little girl and I have a job that is going no and I want to set an example to my family that schooling is important and a necessity if you want to be something in this world. My plans and goals are to get my Gen. Ed. (AS) first and then get my degree in Respiratory Therapy (AS) and then gain some occupational experience. After that I will continue my education to further help me reach my end career goal of being a Health Diagnostic and Treating Practitioner.
