What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?
Luckily, I have a four-year degree from a prestigious institution. I am also fortunate to have work experience both in the corporate and non-profit sectors and in some key areas that employers look for. I have had amazing opportunities and experiences and have thoroughly enjoyed the jobs I have had and the people I have worked with and for. But even with all that behind me, I am still asking myself the age old question - "what do I want to be when I grow up?"
Where does my passion lie? What is it that will get me out of bed each day, excited at the prospect of accomplishment in a field that truly moves me? I ask myself this question daily.
Here is what I know I am passionate about: I am passionate about writing. I am passionate about law and government. I am passionate about public relations, marketing and communications. I am passionate about causes and helping my fellow man (woman). I am passionately looking for a career that encompasses all of these.
So when I ask that questions: what do I want to be when I grow up? I have some formulation of an answer: I want to be the kind of person that accomplished something - not necessarily monumental, but something that I can be proud of.
