Future career aspirations: I plan to begin my career by pursuing a role in the field of social work, which will enable me to bridge socioeconomic gaps for children of underrepresented and marginalized populations. I specifically hope to encourage and help empower adolescents to gain access to the resources required to help achieve their own aspirations, which circumstances might have suggested were otherwise impossible. Furthermore, should my course of action take such a turn, I will potentially opt to take on an investigative role as a homicide detective or earn a position at the federal level in the Civil Rights sector. In my chosen career field, my utmost aspiration is to seek and achieve justice. That being said, I’m excited to explore the countless avenues that will enable me to accomplish this feat.
Top 3 goals for your time abroad: Appropriately represent my home country in an ambassador role, familiarize myself with Thai culture and language, and be as out of my element as I possibly can be.
