If I could make a living doing what I love most, it would be helping people. For as long as I can remember I have always been told I have an “old” soul. Or that I’m wise beyond my years. Now when you’re ten you have no clue what that means. The older I became though the more I began to understand. I have a deep understanding of people. Sometimes I know them better than they know themselves after just minutes of knowing that person. This has led me to my true calling: a counselor. In order to do this I have enrolled in the George Fox Adult degree program. I am signing up for financial aid and crossing my fingers and toes that help comes through. I have three children: Payton is four, Lucy is two, and Jack is two months. I want to show them that at any age you can accomplish your dreams and goals no matter what life throws your way. All you need is a little hard work and perseverance. My hope is that by learning to help just one of my future patients achieve personal stability, I can change their life and when that patient helps another person make a change for the better in their life I know that I am on my way to changing the world.
