  • 2. Personal Statement<br /> Psychology is an interest that I have held dear to my heart since I was in middle school. My first opportunity to truly explore the field of psychology was when I was a freshman in high school. It was the history of psychology that first intrigued me and then learning about how to incorporate it in everyday life is what inspired me to learn how to help others. While exploring the field I believe that my true interest lies in counseling those in need particularly families of all kinds. Even though there are many job opportunities for someone with a B.A. in Psychology my most desired job would to be able to have my own practice. I would want to work in the field of family counseling with my main focus on children/adolescents. There are so many children who have problems that are cause by their environment that need help. There are also so many families that need to learn to communicate and function better and I want to be able to help them. I know that I must first complete my B.A, my masters and then my PhD. before I am able to realize my dream. However I am eager to put the work in to accomplish my dreams. Until I am able to open my own practice I want to learn and study first hand under actual psychologists who are helping people every day. After the completion of my B.A I would want to continue with my graduates program and possibly participate in internships for my field of study. <br /> Being as young as I am; I have only had two previous jobs to where I was trusted with money and organization. My customer relation skills were also what made me so successful in my occupations. My main objective has been for focus on attaining my education that way I can one day reach my goals and help those who truly need it. Although I do not have many concerns about being a counselor I acknowledge that it will not only be time consuming but challenging to reach the level of PhD. the reason I need a PhD is that I want to not only have my own private practice but I want to help a wide range of people and make them feel comfortable knowing that I have my PhD. Despite the fact that I don’t have any formal training as of now I have been taking classes with Argosy University pertaining to psychology. <br />
