What Do I Want to do With the Rest of my Life?

What do you want to do with the rest of your life? 

When the Pandemic first happened in the year of 2019, panic and uncertainty became the main focus of everyone’s lives. The Pandemic brought devastation to many families who lost loved ones as well as their jobs. Children were forced to stay home and not be able to interact with their peers and see their parents afraid of what’s to come. It was a very easy situation to become pessimistic and lose hope. However, I have been blessed to disclose this Pandemic created an opportunity for me to jump back in and finish getting my associates degree. I never pictured myself going back to college because I was extremely discouraged because my GPA was terrible. I did horribly when I first went to college as a teenager fresh out of high school. When classes were forced to go remote my world changed. I was able to care for my home and children and attend classes at night. Being an example to my children is my main goal. I want to finish this semester I am currently taking. After completing my associates degree in Liberal Arts, I will move on to getting a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Resources. To answer the question, What do I want to do with the rest of my life? I want to help anyone I can. I come from a poor, teenage mother on public assistance and know the struggle the people in my community go through everyday. The fight everyday to not be generalized by the area I live in and being hispanic. The lack of organic foods in my local supermarkets but liquor stores and smoke shops are fully packed with supplies. I was born into generational poverty. Having to search for opportunities because my family never finished highschool makes me appreciative and grateful for my life and I want to give back. That is why my degree focus is Human Resources. However, Matthew 6:34 states, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” God willing I will achieve my goals but I am flexible and won’t be disappointed if I am led in any other direction

    Crystal you highlight an important take away about food deserts in which communities often lack of access to organic foods and produce. This is increased by gentrification! Seems to me that your human resources degree can help bring awareness to that! ideas ideas!
