Starting my senior year of high school, looking back I would have never guess the opportunities and challenges that have been thrown my way. My sixth grade year, before I moved to Lennox I was very confused on what I wanted for myself and how to go about that properly. This downfall prepared me when I moved to Lennox to make sure I took full advantage of my schooling and the opportunities given to me. My life has been confusing at times but it is the experiences and flaws that I have gone through that have shaped me into who I am today. Being the youngest in the family with an older brother, living up to the standards and expectations was hard and often difficult to complete. I lacked in school and wasn’t interested in doing my best, …show more content…

Helping people has always been in the back of my head and I would love the opportunity to touch other people’s lives. It is important to me to help as many people as I can, I would like to extend this into my family in the future.

I would like to become a pediatric occupational therapist and work in a school helping children with their writing skills or in a pediatric outpatient center. I knew that I had a passion for working with children when I volunteered at a camp during my freshman year of high school that taught kids with disabilities how to ride a two-wheel bike. Being able to see the progress that the kids made during the camp and how excited they were when they could finally ride a bike independently was both inspiring and rewarding. I think that it is hard for people to realize that the things they do every single day without a thought, such as brushing their teeth or feeding themselves, are a challenge for others. I want to help those who face these challenges become more independent and have an increased quality of life, and I know that by becoming an occupational therapist I can do just

I’m going to join many clubs that promote peace and diversity. I also plan on managing healthy relationships with my professors, classmates, and teammates. My greatest aspirations in life remain to be happy and honest. I lost one of the kindest teachers earlier this year to breast cancer, she has always told me to be confident, honest, and happy with whatever career I pursue.

I knew that I wanted to continue to help others and after researching the many jobs a social worker can have is when I changed my major to Social Work. Choosing to major in Social Work was one of the best

I know that I probably will not have time to accomplish all the goals that I have for college, but I know I can conquer some of them, and I will.
