Essay 1: Educational Goals
If I was given the chance to attend the University of Phoenix, I'd be interested in obtaining my bachelors degree in social work. I’ve always wanted to pursue a career where I can help children and families in need. Having children of my own I know how important it is for our kids to grow up in a stable, loving environment. I can't help but notice how a lot of families struggle to provide proper care for their children. When I look at my own children, I know how blessed I have been. I hope to one day be able to help as many children and families as I can lead better lives.
If I was to enroll in the bachelors program for social work, I hope to gain many skills that pertain to this specific job. Such as, emotional intelligence, communication skills, critical thinking which I believe depending on the situation is highly important in this line of work. I also believe learning how to set proper boundaries is essential when you’re a social worker. Finally, learning how to have high tolerance for certain situations. Learning how to deal with extreme situations is vital when you're a social worker. All of these skills I have mentioned I feel are top priority in this like of work. I would make it my top priority to succeed in every aspect of the program.
In conclusion, as I said in the beginning this is something I have been wanting to pursue for a very long time, I just have not had an opportunity like this before.. Becoming a social worker is something I hold close to my heart. An opportunity such as this does not come up often and I would love nothing more than to be able to take full advantage of it.
