20 years from now I want to have a foster child, but I will hopefully not be in any relationship. I will start my day by getting up at 6 am. By 8 am I will be heading to work as a counselor for troubled teens in the OUSD. While working with a few of these students, I see myself through these lost teen’s who have all struggled to figure out what to do with their own lives. I want to be able to provide a healthy environment for students who feel unsafe so that they can be able to know that they have a place to go instead of being on the streets and turning to bad habits to deal with their problems. I also want to be able to be someone that these students can trust without thinking I am going to “snitch” on them. The job of helping troubled teens if very important to me because currently as a teen I struggle trying to meet all the expectations my parents have, and it’s very stressful to know I can’t be what they want me to be. After my day at work is over, I will go home and finish my day by spending time with my child and having a lovely dinner.
