Dear Mrs. Roley,

Before beginning this unit, I wanted to become a children's or teen psychologist. My family constantly told me to pursue my dream in whatever makes me happy, and helping other people out was always my number one priority.

I have always wanted to and always will want to become a psychologist because I just love listening to people, giving people advice, and always having something to solve for the better of someone. I would be able to earn a decent amount…
