“Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win” (King, 1977). Growing up as a child in a violent city tainted by the bitterness of murders and soured friendships, I have witnessed events that have pushed me to be better, not only for myself but for the place that I come from. Being motivated by the hurt my community has experienced, my passion has always been to become a part of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) to help individuals who have experienced circumstances similar to my own; such as the loss of close friends and family members due to murder or other heinous acts. Sociology with a concentration in Criminal Justice seemed to be the perfect path to my dream. This will not only help me give back to those who I can share similar backgrounds with but also give those who have been struck by bad fate a chance to find peace and justice within their own lives again; finally putting away the monsters that made way into their lives.
Adolescents are often hindered in life by the absence of parents. I myself grew up as one of those adolescent teens whose parents weren’t always there. Due to the fact that my parents were not always around, I was able to fully experience and understand what the “street life” was like because I had begun to take after my older siblings. Adolescents can be placed at a higher victimization risk depending specifically on the activity that they may partake in when they go out (Felson, Savolainen, Berg, & Ellonen, 2012). This was my breakthrough, I did not enjoy the bad things that I had witnessed nor did I want to any longer be a part of them. The streets are what inspired my drive to better myself, and it gave me a dream of becoming a part of the FBI. I want to help those who suffered from the sights that I saw as a child and those who are still suffering from them. I feel that this is the best way to overcome the struggles and adversities handed to me throughout my childhood years.
Learning From Home, Supplying My Future
Making it into a college – not to mention being a full scholarship athlete – is a tremendous accomplishment to have gained, especially where I have come from. Through rigorous and extreme dedication, I will work to obtain my Bachelors of Science degree within the next four years from Clemson University. I plan to do this by working hard within the classroom as well as outside of it. In order to do this, one must strive for greatness, greatness beyond the court or field that they may be playing on. Acknowledging my professor will be the first and foremost task that I will try to do; simply to establish a relationship if I were to need any extra help throughout the course. I will assay to complete my undergraduate program within 3 years so that I will be able to receive my Master’s degree through the graduate’s program. I hope to do so by the time that I have reached the end of my senior in college. Entering into the graduate’s program, I will seek a Master’s degree that can give me a superior status entering into the business world, post-graduation. I believe that this will benefit my livelihood tremendously,
