Coming into college, I knew exactly what I wanted to major in and what I wanted to do for a career. I was convinced that I was going to do research in either developmental or educational psychology or become a school psychologist. The more I learn about the field and grad school the more I’m like ehhh maybe not. I took an education class last year and I thought that I wanted to be a teacher. Then I took some more psych classes and I thought maybe I want to go into family therapy or counseling. Then there was a brief moment when I wanted to be an intervention specialist or a social worker. But right now in this moment, I think I want to go into K-12 school administration. So basically, I have no clue what I want to do after college.
Every class that I take opens my eyes to a new field that I could pursue or a different area that I hadn’t thought about. I also spend a lot of time looking up different careers online and different grad school programs. I think it’s important to explore different options and routes because everything college and beyond is an investment.
It’s hard for me to not know exactly what I want to do with my life, but I’m slowly learning that it’s okay. So the only things I know for sure is that I’m moving back to Cleveland after I graduate and I want to work with kids.
