I have decided to pursue social work as a profession due to my desire of wanting to help others to set and accomplish their own personal beneficial goals. The profession is all about making a difference for me as the worker and leaving a lasting impact on the lives of my clients.

I want to be able to help clients learn how to help themselves, which requires me as their social worker to be capable of recognizing the issues at hand and also be knowledgeable enough to carry out the duties that would be necessary to help that client progress in life. I feel that social work is a profession that should not be taking lightly.

A person in this field has to be able to handle stress and also be committed to performing a task at their highest
