I Am Proud Of Who I Am

1310 words - 5 pages

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said “To be yourself in a world that is trying to make you something else is a great accomplishment”. Who am I? is question that many often struggle to answer, but for me it allows me to differentiate from my constituents and express who I really am. What makes me such a unique individual is my ability to identify with 5 strong strengths. I love the fact that I am futuristic and I have the ability to relate, I am responsible, I am a developer and last but not least I am disciplined. Each one these themes shape and generate my personality. Born on February 22nd 2000 I am the only daughter to Rob and Theresa Jones. When I’m not roaming the illustrious campus of State University, I enjoy shopping I personally feel retail therapy is the best therapy! I love spending time with my family they understand me when know one else does, traveling to tropical islands, cooking, going to church and pampering my toy poodle Chanel Briana. When we are born, most of us are given a suitcase full of standards, acceptable behavior, things to learn, values & a whole load of do’s and don’ts. As we grow and progress in life we keep adding or throwing away some contents of this suitcase. Each of us thus becomes a product of the choices we have made or that we have consciously decided not to make. Since childhood, we have our dreams and we want to make them a reality. Part of these dreams is about what we become and that results in the career we choose. My ultimate passion in life is to impact the lives of many in the healthcare field this also lead my decision in choosing public health as a career choice. By thinking ahead for the future it brings out my futuristic strength. By nature, I channel my mental and physical energies toward what I can accomplish in the months, years, or decades ahead.

People who are especially talented in the Futuristic theme are inspired by the future and what could be; they inspire others with their visions of the future. Whenever I set a goal, I first ask myself is the goal realistic and reachable and secondly if I am willing to make changes in my life to reach those goals. While I have several goals there are a few that are imperative to reach. One of them being a counseling center for underprivileged girls ages K-12. As a victim and an advocate for bullying I want to highlight the situation and teach the girls how to detect signs and how to deal with a bully. I had my parents to help me but my goal is to target those that don’t necessarily receive that attention at home. Self esteem will also is a big topic surrounding girls in that age group I want to teach them about positive body image and the importance of loving yourself. Obtaining my Ph.D. is another meaningful goal I intend to achieve; with myself being the first generation from my family to attend a major university I feel the need to reach my highest potential. Setting big goals, taking small steps and being focused in my pursuit I know I will...
