If I was able to earn a living doing what I love most, it will be Dance Movement Therapy. This will be great achievement for me because I strongly feel I can help people become aware of their physical and mental ability through movement of dance. Dance can help with rhythmic motions: can assist nearly any mental and social difficulties. It releases different chemicals in the body that improve mental, social and physically well-being. DMT also helps people agin self confidents. There is researched that I studied that indicates healing comes within the body and by making a conscious decision we can better ourselves.

I believe I can help people who want to be helped. I also believe I can do this by helping children first. Our youth is the most important because it is children who eventually continue our obligations. By educating our children we can build healthy man and woman to continue to improve our communities. This is one of my main goals that is important.

Another goal is to be able to facilitate people to become aware of how movement reflects their daily life. By doing this I will incorporate Movement Therapy for patients in the public and private healthcare sector and let them know they have a special dance inside of them.

I believe by me being a Dance Movement Therapist it can benefit people who are struggling physically and mentally. This is why I would love to be able to earn living as Dance Therapist.
