Senior year of high school was a time of growth for me. I began to define and understand who I wanted to be and why I was put on this Earth. My calling was summarized in one phrase: "Wake up every day asking not what you can do for yourself, but what can you do to serve others." The idea was to select a career path in which I could best serve others. This was an extensive process in regards to what I was passionate about and where I could best prepare myself for this work. As I was solidifying where I was going to continue my education and what I was going to study for the next four years, I realized that the best way to pursue this goal was through becoming a lawyer.
