“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts” -Winston Churchill

In life I have witnessed many unfortunate situations; people experiencing difficulties due to their environment, and falling victim to their circumstances.  My mother always told me that our responsibility is to help those who find themselves in less fortunate situations than we do.  That message was engraved in my heart and mind forever, not only because it was something my mother said, but because it was also something she practiced.  Feeling that it was my responsibility to help others, I did.  And the more I helped, the greater my satisfaction.  I began to feel that there was nothing more rewarding than helping someone in need and witnessing them overcome whatever obstacles they faced.  I am humbled by helping others and life has greater meaning when I do.  That is why I believe Human Services chose me, not the other way around….
