Personal Statement: 


Growing up I always viewed the world as an opportunity to make my mark. From a young age, I knew that I wanted to leave my mark by helping and bettering the lives of others. I couldn’t decide in which way I would help people whether it would be nursing, therapy, teaching, or another aspect. I finally realized that I would help people by majoring in Social Work and minoring in community health education. With the knowledge I gain from the two I plan to start by upgrading the quality of lives for not only children but adults in my hometown. My first step will be to become a social worker or case manager for families and veterans. Eventually, I will become a grant writer to have more subsidies and grants offered to the people of Philadelphia. These are just a few of the many things I plan to do to make my mark on this world.
