Nearing the end of my road to the Eagle Scout award I am finding that my purpose in life is becoming more clear. Through scouts and the other activities that I have surrounded myself with, I have come to realize that I want to be a leader. In the leadership positions I have held I have picked up so many skills that I am going to use in my life. I don’t just want to be one type of leader though. I would like to be a leader in the workplace, morally, and within my family. It only seems right to keep my life going in that direction.
I plan on going to college this summer to study public relations and marketing as USF or FSU. Beyond that I’d then like to move out of Florida for my masters and get a job in a city like Chicago. Ideally I would like to have a job within a magazine or a music agency searching for ways to sell certain brands or ideas, and finding ways to promote those things.
Something very important to me in my life is service and that is why throughout my life I also plan to remain involved in the act of helping others in need. Throughout high school I have belonged to a youth group that’s has gone a mission trip every summer, and on these trips I have had some of the most meaningful experiences of my life which have really made me realize how good my life is, and how important it is to share your talents, abilities, and time with others who may not be as fortunate as yourself.
While I may sound very certain of myself and the upcoming future, I am very open to new possibilities and options that may come my way. So whether I stick to the plan I have made myself of end up somewhere completely different in life, I will use the talents and skills I have gained from scouts to be successful.
