If I had a nickel for everytime an adult asked me what I wanted to do for the rest of my life; needless to say I would not be worried about a thing. Teens tend to get easily frustrated with this question, but we never realize the importance of it. The truth is, we too ask ourselves this question and for whatever reason, maybe it's our youth or our short attention spans, we can not even give ourselves an answer. A couple years ago, I was this such teen. I was backed into a corner; my grandparents had just asked me this infamous question. For once, I actually thought about it and I spouted out, "Well, Pop Pop... Mamaw, I am going to be a poltician." I was the cause for many "jaw-droppings" that day, but I felt too excited to worry with that. I finally knew what I wanted to be, and oh, how I wanted to be a poltician so badly. For a teen, I guess it is rather odd that I chose this career, but there are many reasons ...view middle of the document...
This excited me beyond belief and I decided that I must look into becoming a poltician when I got older.
As time passed, the passion only grew stronger. I was now fourteen, but still too young to actually get politically involved. This only succeeded in making me even more impatient. I decided that if I was going to have to wait all this while, I might as well make good use of it. My new initiative was to bombard my daddy with questions. I was under the impression that he was an economic genius and although he does not have a degree stating so, I owe most of my poltical career to him and his patience with my crazy dreams. These questions were carefully formulated to ensure that I learned the voting process, the way our government is run -and by who? Asking questions was the key to my discovery of the way America is run.
Finally, the time had come. I was sixteen and eager to get out there and help my fellow polticians in leading my country. I had prayed and hoped an opportunity would arise and not too long after, something did afterall. I have been given the opportunity to work on a state senator's campaign for US Senate. I am still living out this amazing opportunity and I enjoy every second spent doing so. Due to all of my political experiences here lately, I know that politics is my calling in life. I have found myself to be quite the patriot and discovered my deep passion for this great country I live in. When I am serving my country with my political attributes, whether big or small, I find my very soul is warmed and happy. I was meant to be an American politician.
All blame owed to my random realization that I was in love with politics, I chose Political Science to be my field of study. Sometimes, I debate the thought that maybe politics chose me instead of the other way around. I truly believe with all my heart that this is what I was put here on this earth to do. As a result, I will fight to get there. Everyday will consist of hard work and frustration, but serving my country with my words and actions brings me a joy that far surpasses any of the bad qualities that tend to come with my dream career.
