Today I wanted to just make a quick post about something that is important to me. I recently just registered for my classes for fall and thats why I decided to sit down and just talk about it. For those who dont know Im in university and recently gotten accepted into the Faculty of Education at University of Winnipeg. I can honestly tell you Ive never been so excited to start school. I guess thats what happens when you truly enjoy what youre doing.
But let me tell you, that wasnt always my first decision. Coming out of High School I had my mind set on something in the medical field because thats what I grew up thinking I would do and theres nothing wrong with that. But experiencing university was a lot different for me than high school. I learned that you learn more about yourself and what your real interests and strengths are. You dont stop growing once youve graduated, no matter how old you are you are still growing and learning new things in life and about yourself.
So when I got accepted into Education this year after a long time of playing the waiting game, I just felt such an overwhelming happiness and especially relief. For awhile I felt I was stuck with no where to go because everything was always unsure until I finally got this reassurance that I was going in the right path. I know I am young and still have a long way to go but its nice to feel like Im working towards something. Everyone is meant to do something in their life and this just felt right for me.
Education has always been an important thing in my life and also my familys life. My inspiration for that is my grandma. I wont go into too detail just cause it will be a long post but long story short it was something important to her that she wasnt really able to experience fully. So because of that she made it a goal that when she had children that all of them would finish university and get that degree. She always told me how important it is to take school seriously and to do your best so that you will have a better future for not only for yourself but if you decide to have a family one day. It has always stuck to me especially since my grandma always wanted to be a teacher which she never was able to. But she is a teacher to me and all her kids and grandchildren because she has instilled in us so much knowledge and life lessons that you cant just get anywhere else. And for that I dedicate my goal to become a teacher to her because she inspires me in so many ways possible. Shes so independent and strong considering she raised four kids on her own and put them all through school. She is a true example of Hard work does pay off.
As I make my way to become a teacher, I also want to make a difference. Thats why I revolved my platform on mental health catering especially to the education part of it and really making it apart of the curriculum in Canada. I have this vision and goal that by the time I graduate and start my teaching career in a couple years, that there will be mental health education as part of the curriculum that I will get to teach one day. I know it wont be easy but I will do my best to make it there and hopefully by some help and support, we can all work together and get there. Then maybe all of our hard work to make that difference, will pay off.
