Growing up I can only remember 2 things that I wanted to be- a teacher and a lawyer. I quickly threw out becoming a teacher when I learned that they made no money, but I didn’t really set my sights on becoming a lawyer because I felt it was too far out there.
I didn’t even know a lawyer! Growing up it’s hard to set your sights on something that you personally know nothing about. I never felt qualified enough to become a lawyer.
I don’t feel that way today. Today I feel closer to actually becoming a lawyer than ever before.
I started attending RSU 3 months ago and have already participated in several speaking presentations- 2 of them being debates! Oh my goodness, I would’ve never thought I’d enjoy it so much! I’m pretty good at it too! 🙂
I can disagree with someone and express this without getting angry. I actually love critically listening with the intent to disagree and argue (I probably do this more than I should anyway). 🙂
I love being the center of attention, people looking at me, being influenced by me and my words.
Yes, I feel closer to law school than ever before.
