My professional and educational objectives include continuing my education in the fall, working toward a college degree, and ultimately pursuing a career within the legal system.
In regard to education, I have recently come to realize just how important obtaining one is, not only as a means to an end professionally, but in order to become a well rounded and purposeful individual. Although this realization has come later for me than for some, I am now committed to working hard in order to proof myself, so that I will be able to continue my education and obtain a Bachelor's degree in criminal justice.
After obtaining a Bachelor's degree, I intend to continue with my studies and obtain a jurist doctorate in law. These desires have partly come out of my volunteer work. Over the summer I worked in an outpatient clinic that served and advocated for individuals that had a multitude of problems, but had little access or means to help themselves. Although my role at this center was nominal it sparked my interest in law and made me feel that with an education I could not only empower myself but that I could also make a difference.
My professional goals will ultimately include some type of work in the non-for-profit sector of law. I am aware that there are a number of avenues to peruse and I plan to complete an internship while in school in order to expose myself to the professional that I have selected. By combining my education with hands on experience, I will be able to find an area of law that best suits my abilities, values, and interests.
I feel that my educational and career objectives are realistic and attainable and I am committed to putting in the hard work necessary to attain my goals.
