My mother has always asked me what I wanted to be when I get older. For so many years I was not able not able to answer this question. She is not the only one that have asked me this question. I have found that this question has become to be common to many of us. On the other hand, after working for fifteen years as a security officer, I know exactly what I want to do with my life. I want to further my education and skills to pursue my career. I have chosen Criminal Justice as my choice of studies. I have already obtained an Associate Degree in Criminal Justice from Ashworth University. My intention is to continue to go to college and obtain a bachelor degree in this field and work hard in order to gain as much information as I can. I am a
The most important long range goal I have ever had was to graduate high school. This has been one of my goal's throughout my career as a student. It has been my main goal because I will be the only child of my mother's to graduate from high school. My mother has always pushed me to my best and has always told me to reach for the stars with this goal, because she did not want me to get a GED like she did. My education goals consist of learning something new every day. Throughout my educational career as a student there were major and minor bumps in the road, yet my goal of being able to receive a high school diploma kept me thriving to accomplish it. Now as the last few months of school wind down closer and closer to graduation my heart grows
Without dreams and goals, success is hard to achieve. In grade school, I decided to become something in the medical field because I wished to help people
my long -term goal is being a paramedic, my choice being a paramedic is because I would love to save people. Having the feeling of accomplishment that I saved someone from a life or death situation. I hope that in time I could become a paramedic in time with 4 years of college I think even saving one person is worth 4 years. choosing the goal was important to me because I really am inspired by the people who save others and i wanna inspire a kid like me. in 10 years I see me going through college for being a paramedic. Being a paramedic takes a lot of commitment that I am ready for. I am excited to help save people's lives. Being a paramedic, involves doing great in high school to get into a great college.
Considering lifetime goals, many people are unsure on how to prepare. They will either center around areas with no direction or only concern themselves with the subject with which they would like to be a professional in. This way they can find their passion or learn more about it. Since I was little, somewhere within deep myself, I have always strived to become someone who will be able to help others. The way I have come to realize how I can achieve this is to become a veterinarian. I will be able to help people who are unable to help the ones they love, their animals.
I wanted to be a parole officer but as a correctional officer I quickly realized that many offenders gravitated towards me as a mentor even though I was very young. I begin to pull the offenders who often gave me a lot of trouble out one on one and realized that they just wanted to express their frustrations on the mistakes that they had made that changed their lives forever. At that moment I knew that I still wanted to help people make better decisions in life but not as a correctional officer and I begin to notice counselors visiting the offenders in church. I saw how the offenders express themselves in church and it made me realize how they were just as much human as I was. I made the choice to become a social worker ultimately after experiencing
My most prevailing goal during my college experience is to develop and improve my character so that I will be able to excel and succeed in my future career. I believe that my commitment to the common good these past few years has truly influenced my academic interest in pursuing a future career in Nursing. In college,
With graduation drawing near I am excited and ready to put my Agricultural Science degree to use in an industry that I am extremely passionate about. Throughout my time at Cal Poly, I have been working for the San Luis Obispo Police Department as a Student Neighborhood Assistant Program Officer. Before I began working at San Luis Obispo Police Department I had always planned on a career in law enforcement, but with graduation quickly approaching I am not certain that is the career path I am meant to take especially with the public's perspective of peace officers today. I can say that during my time with the San Luis Obispo Police Department, I have gained an immense amount of skills through first hand experiences such as organization, leadership,
Our goals in life reminds us that we hold the key to elevate ourselves, to reach our full potential of success. Using that key we unlock the door to success, testimonies and motivation to those whom hold important places in our hearts. However, obstacles and trials can shift our goals in another path, which will direct us to back to the goals in question. An important goal for me was to attain my Master’s Degree in Business Administration. I challenged myself and made it a priority to ensure the goal reached full execution until in 2004, my goal detoured in another direction when I gave birth to my son.
Everyone has dreams and goals, some people may stick to them and some may not. But I will make sure that I will stick to my goal and that goal is to be a physical sports trainer. Ever since I got hurt and tore my ACL I everything was over, but the trainers gave me confidents again and I wanted to play football again, and that's why I want to become a trainer because they didn't give up on me.
Originally I had planned to go to Waldorf University and major in criminal justice to become a police officer. I saw many two faced/unreasonable officers throughout my years of growing up that I wanted to do something different. I remember hearing about the cases on tv and thinking, hey, I can make a difference. I wanted to become a police officer to show people that not
As early as high school, I knew what I wanted to do with my life, but I did not know how I would achieve it. If somebody said, “In 20 years, you’ll be a Master Sergeant in the United States Army.” I would have laughed because initially, I did not think it could be achievable by me. I am firm believer that everything happens for reason. I am a 1st generation college graduate. I have earned a Bachelors & Master’s degree and still managed to serve my country and provide for my family. I have served my family, community, and country and I still have more to give. My entire life has been about serving people.
I am first hoping to finish my Bachelors in Criminal Justice in order to be able to apply for jobs in the law enforcement. I am also considering joining the police academy that way I can gain experience/ training in the field I wish to begin my career with. If everything goes as planned, which I am positive that with the motivation I have I will hopefully accomplish these goals, and I earn a job in Law Enforcement. Therefore, I will most likely last a couple of years being a Police Officer and then work my way up until I am a Crime Scene
“What do you want be when you grow up”? A common question many are asked from an early age. The answers are usually the same given by children; doctor, astronaut, and police officer. Then through adolescent and teenage years these answers become more specific such as; marine biologists, brain surgeon, and engineer. By the first year of college, most young adults are positive in their future career choices. It was around this time that I answered the age old question for myself. I had set my heart on becoming a Criminologist.
