What I have always felt was a purpose in my life is trying to help others with their lives, to help out the underdog. I had no real idea how to go about that goal. I have a B.A. in Psychology and I felt that Psychology was a practical way that I could achieve my goal with life in a honorable and noble manner.
I have been through a couple of different shift of my life trying to figure it out. One of those times I was pursuing a path in theater. The stage was where my passion resided, it actually still resides there. When I had found out about the study of Drama Therapy, it seemed like a calling to me. This is a way to combine my two fields of study with my purpose and passion can coexist as one. It is also the way I feel that I can achieve my goals.
Most of the time of my life was structured by college or the military, so I am working on transitioning into a more profession type of life. I would like to be a licensed therapist working with the VA dealing with veterans like myself as the focus population.
