Before you read my essay, I want you to know that I am a five foot, three inch tall young lady. I have blue eyes and bright blonde hair. I am what you would call a petite figure. So you can imagine the surprise on the faces of my friends and family when I told them I want to be in the FBI one day. My biggest dream in life is to be a Criminal Analyst in the FBI. What I am most passionate about is solving crimes. As of right now, the only crime I’ve solved consisted of me sitting on my couch pretending to be the partner of Derek Morgan from Criminal Minds, but I have a big plan to change that. There are a few reasons why I aspire to be a member of the FBI. The first reason is obvious, I want to save lives. I want to find psychotic killers and put them behind bars. The second reason is something more personal, that I have struggled with all my life. People underestimate the “vertically challenged” women in this world. I want little girls to know that just because they are small doesn’t mean they cant do big things. I want to show them that it is possible for anyone, no matter what size, to follow their dreams.
