I just came across a piece in my journal that made me think how far I come. The piece isn’t dated, but by the places listed I am sure this was pre-graduated school. It reads
“I want to volunteer as a tutor, because of my own life experiences. This position will provide me with hands on experience toward my degree in social work.

My current experience consists of working at a day care for two and half years, _ summer reading program, and I assisted with several one-day programs and workshops at _ Saturday program, _ art in the park for kids, and _.”
