I always told myself I would go to school to become a Health Care Professional (or Registered Nurse). This was a dream of mine for awhile, until I actually volunteered/worked at health care facilities.
Before you jump into a career and put a bunch of your hard earned money into school, volunteer or talk to a professional who is doing the career you’re going to school for! If I would have never volunteered or worked in a health care setting, I would have eventfully dropped out of nursing school (or finished it being completely miserable knowing I don’t want to do this.)
Whatever pathway I chose, I knew I absolutely had to do something that helped others. I could not sit at a 9-5 job doing corporate work! If this is what you do and you enjoy it that’s awesome then! But that isn’t the case for me. After the nursing career idea ended, I eventually thought of becoming a Special Education Teacher. This idea dwindled down when I talked to a few people in this profession.
After 1.5 years I finally realized what I wanted to do with my life, and that was to help people with their overall condition of their life before they ever even got into a hospital setting. I want to prolong that chance for anyone. 80% of chronic diseases can be stopped or prolonged if a person ate healthy and exercised regularly.
Are you an aspiring Personal Trainer or anything that involves the healthy lifestyle?
