I found out that I was dyslexic.
Let me start from the being. When I was in high school I never had problems in school until now. My freshman year in college I had all type of problems with my school work. I went to disability services to see what was going on with me and that when I found out I had dyslexic. That made me thinks how could I have this problem when I mad all “A” in high school.
I did not do so well my first year. I found out that it was a program that help adult with learning disability services. This program was out of the channel 19 news station in my city. This program help people with dyslexic but I did not want any help because I still could not understand why this is happening to me. I drop out of school after my first year and started working and going to all the doctor that I can found that can help me understand what is happening to me and why this was not taking care when I was in high school.
The summer of 2005 I went back to UCBA to see what they can do to help me meet my academic goals. I bring to start to see what the disability services offered to their disability student. They give me and everything under the sun but I need to start doing thing for myself. I being to talk to all my teachers about my dyslexic and I started working very hard to improve my dyslexic.
Now I am a senior nest in the school of social work. I want to become and social work because I will like to help people with disability and help them get over the obstacle they are face in life. I want to be someone on the first line that can help them move forward in education and life because I did not have anyone to talk to about what I was going through. I want to be that one they can come to about anything.

1. What led you to choose social work as your profession? For example, describe events of significance in your growth and development, and experiences in your home, school, work and community that have been influential in your decision to be a social worker.
Life is a process that people go through. We encounter various experiences some of which define the goals and decisions that we make. It has always been my desire to pursue education to the highest level and change the lives of many people in the society. This I do believe will come true.
Even as we pursue our academic dream we encounter challenges that at times if not well managed derails our visions. Finding out that I was dyslexic was the greatest challenge I ever experienced in my life. I noticed this during my first year of college after I noticed that I had numerous problems with my schoolwork. This was not the situation during my high school level as I performed exemplary well scoring an average of A. Even though there was a program on channel 19 news station in the city that provided adult with learning disability services, I did not seek any help as I did not understand what had gone wrong with my life. Because of the persistence of the problem however, I decided to seek medical attention from the disability services. I was dissolution but remained optimistic and resilient. I decided to drop out of school and began working and visiting all sorts of doctors seeking help.
Even with this challenge, I never gave up and in 2005; I decided to go back to UCBA to find out whether I could get assistance on how I could meet my academic goals. Their services that cater for disabled students provided me with enough support to help pick myself up. To overcome this situation, I gained courage and desired to be an independent person able to do my own things. I started sharing with other people like my teachers about my dyslexia and took a personal initiative of working to improve my situation and condition, through this sharing, I started my journey to recovery and this helped reunite my concentration and focus.

2. Describe your career goals – what areas of social work are you planning to pursue?
Now as a senior in the school of social work, I have a goal of becoming a social worker to help people with disabilities. I have experienced the agony these people go through and I feel that with my skills and knowledge I can help them deal with this challenge and enable them lead a fulfilling life. I believe that education is the most important aspect in empowering such people and as such I will strive to champion education to people with disabilities. I also believe that these people require mentorship and people to talk to in order to help them enhance their level of self-confidence. I never had people to share with and this impacted negatively in my life and road to recovery.
In five years’ time I believe that I will have attained a PhD in Social Work. This is a dream I have always thought about and I have the ability to reach this far. The reason for aiming for this achievement is not only to accomplish my dreams but most importantly to transform the lives of as many people as I can. I will in addition be in a position to get involved in issues within the disabled community and inspire many through my personal experiences. The support that people with disabilities get from family and friends is very critical and this will be as well my agenda to ensure that society stands and supports every one.

3. What do you see as personal strengths that will enhance your ability as a social worker? What limitations do you think you have to address?
With my knowledge of my disability I believe that I can help people in cheating their goals in their life and being able to understand their challenges they might be going through. My goal is to help people understand does their disability with not hinder them and cheating whatever they have set out for their life and by becoming a social worker I will be able to achieve this go in life.
