Final Paper

As a child, people dream to be firemen, astronauts, nurses, doctors and many other heroic trades. As life goes on, unfortunately, most do not accomplish the dreams they had when they were children. When I was a child, a tragedy happened with the Challenger Shuttle and from that moment on, I knew I wanted to be an astronaut because I wanted to be a hero. Like most others, life happened to me and I went down a different path. However, I always knew that I wanted to do something that would help others due to the different situations I had to contend with throughout my lifetime.

A couple of years ago, I decided I wanted to go back to school. I had lost my job and trying to find work was a difficult task. My husband finally said that this may be a blessing and maybe I should do what I had always wanted. Maybe this was my path in life. I decided to major in Nursing. I started taking courses that were conducive to my degree and I found myself becoming unsatisfied. I realized the lack of satisfaction came from studying something I did not have a passion for however; I still had a passion to help people. I realized at that point that what I needed to do is study something that I can help those who have gone through or going through the things I had. Not only help those who have been through tragedy, but help those who are causing the pain. That is when I decided becoming a psychologist was my dream; I believe people are inherently good; they just need someone to help bring it out and now I am working on my B.A. in Forensic Psychology.

I have envisioned what my daily life would be like as a forensic psychologist more often than is, probably, healthy. I love to dream about either contracting myself out to different institutions and working with people through empathy, kindness, and focusing on what can make them mentally healthy. I feel there are so many methods out there and a wise psychologist needs to choose which method would work best with each individual patient. I am excited to see how I utilize my education and figure out how to work with each one of mine. I, also, am interested in, possibly, working with governmental agencies such as the FBI to help profile people and truly figure out how the mind of a criminal works and try to get to the core of their issues. I find that those who hurt people can be helped, but only if they desire it. Trying to help not only victims
