Personal Introduction/Barrier Paper
My Name is Derliny Jurine Louis, I am a freshmen at Quinsigamond Community College I’m currently in my second semester. I was Born and raised in Haiti in the capital of Port-au-Prince. I came to the United States at the age of seven years old where I lived in New Jersey until I moved to Worcester Massachusetts October 2013. I live with my mom and younger brother I have a older sister who lives in British Columbia Canada. I’m majoring in Human Services at QCC.
My career goal is to help people in life I want to work directly with all people from different aspects of life helping them with the problems they are facing in life. I do not play any sports although I must say I am a big fan of basketball. My favorite team would have to the Miami Heat I feel that they work great ...view middle of the document...
I believe that everyone should have a chance to travel the world at least once in their lifetime and that’s what I planned to do. My favorite travel destination is France. Although there are many beautiful countries I would like to visit France is my number one destination. My dream is to go France one day and go to Paris and sit under the Eiffel Tower to observe the scenery and people. I have volunteered at many places when I lived in New Jersey. I used to go to the homeless shelters and bring food and supplies. While I visited my sister in the summer of 2013 in British Columbia I had volunteered to help HIV infected individuals raise money by walking 10k.
In this Generation that we live in now there are a lot of social issues that not only interest me but bother me to the bone. Socials such as politics, homeless people, abused kids, homosexuality, world hunger and racism. I must say one important issue that really bother me is world hunger. I find it ridiculous and wrong that there’s people in other parts of the world that are poor and dying every day because they can’t afford to even eat or get a drink of water while other countries waste money by fighting with each other over ridiculous issues. I think we as human’s beings on this should be able to help each other instead of killing each other.
In Life we all go through barriers that we must defeat in order to accomplish our goals and careers. I chose Human Services has my major because it opens a door where I will be able to help people whether if it’s being a social worker or helping individuals lead towards a better life. I want to make a difference in people’s life to where they go home at night and feel that someone cares about their situation. College is by far a hard challenge for me because I am full-time student and I also work a full time job but I don’t plan on giving up. My main strategy is to focus on my education even if it means cutting down my hours at work. I want to be successful , I want to achieve my master’s degree , I want to be able to take a vacation once a year and visit a different country , I don’t want to work for minimum wage that is why I will remain focus on my education until I see that master’s degree in my hand.
