Throughout my whole life I have always known that I wanted to be a teacher. I am naturally a very indecisive person and don't tend to make decisions well but that is one thing that I have always known is right and have never strayed from it. I grew up in a wealthy school district that really didn't have much diversity. I kind of just got used to certain types of people and almost forgot that there were people and children that we much different than what I was used to.
Coming to Texas A&M this past fall I had to be involved in the HOSTS program in the Bryan school district. This was a very eye opening experience for me because I was dealing with kids that were completely opposite than me and what I was used to. It really tested me at first and really made me think if this is what I wanted to do with my life. After I got used to it I really enjoyed working with these kids and really helping them. It created this passion in me to help kids that are less fortunate and are different than the kids I'm used to working with. Right now I'm even planning to go overseas on a mission trip to help kids in Africa. I'm not sure if this is the direction I want to take my career path, but I think that it is definitely a good experience to step out and help these kids that need it most and are so different from what I'm used to.
