I've always believed in the saying " having a purpose is the difference between making a living and making a life." I have been working in the Financial Industry for Thirteen years, I have completed my Bachelors in Law and Society. I initially chose Law because I have always wanted to embark on a career path where I can make a difference. My passion for service and my purpose in making a difference was what led me to the field of study in law.
I have spent the past 13 years working in Corporate America as an Administrative Assistant supporting senior managers booking travel, managing calendars etc. Although I love my job I always feel I wanted to do more, I felt I wasn't making much of an impact and contributing to society. Working with senior managers has helped me to become a well rounded individual but something was missing.
I've always looked for ways I can do more and fulfill my purpose by making a difference. I have a passion for learning and as a result I have always looked for ways to increase my knowledge. I have volunteered with organisations such as LIU school of continuing Ed. where I use my weekends to tutor students learning English I have also volunteered at 1199 Adult Learning Center each time I completed a class I would feel so fulfilled I felt I was making a difference and this made me happy. I have also completed a TESOL program during the time I was tutoring to help me be better equipped to assist the students. I have also traveled to Tanzania numerous times and found the Swahili language interesting as well as the people.
Education is very important to me and this is the reason I have decided to enroll in the World Language Teacher Graduate Certificate Program. I do believe that shaping minds from a young age is essential to how one's future is shaped. The youth are the future training young people at an early age by giving them the tools to succeed and educating them will boost their confidence and give them a better quality of life and also prepare them to become leaders.
