Both of these experiences have been emotionally rewarding.
I need to live a life with a purpose, the purpose of improving and impacting others’ lives.
I don’t want to close my eyes, with the millions of things in my life left undone, not experienced, not achieved, running endlessly until my last breath is a painful regret. The many expectations they have for me have not been met.
From this experience I know that spontaneity and high energy are vital for my growth and satisfaction within my career. I soon attained full-time employment with the San Diego Center for Children, where I continue to volunteer on various weekends and holidays.
As an undergraduate I dedicated my best efforts toward my education and as a result, I graduated with high honors from the University of California, Santa Barbara earning a B. This facility is a residential treatment program for children with severe emotional disturbances resulting from abuse, neglect, homelessness, or abandonment.
I would not have experienced everything life has to offer or accomplished all my goals.
My life would be lived without ever having a purpose.
During my senior year of college I served as a volunteer, mentoring gifted children through my university’s honors program.
Helping a child realize his or her own potential gives me a strong sense of accomplishment.
Volunteer work has also been an activity that I like to include in my life.
As I previously mentioned, I currently volunteer at the San Diego Center for Children.
