At age eleven, I decided to be a social worker after seeing the devastation of illegal drugs on my local community.Our strengths- based profession and skill set seemed to be one of the most viable solutions for a community severely impacted by addiction. It was clear at that point that my life's mission would be to improve the human condition. Social work is the profession that makes that happen on a daily basis.
