Being a college student, having a plan and knowing what you want to do in the future is very important. You should devise this plan while you are in high school and once you reach the doors to that college campus, that plan should be put into action. For my whole life, I have known that I want to be a professional football player when I get older. So, I have trained and prepared for that dream my entire life, so that I can be ready for it if I am blessed enough to make it that far in my career. That is my plan A, coming into college, and as for my plan B, I am not sure yet and I hope to discover that while I am here at Tennessee State University. Everyone should have a plan A and B for themselves and should be gearing themselves toward what they want to do with their lives in college.
For my career choice, I want to be a professional football player, as I mentioned before. To put myself in the position to work towards that goal, I joined the football team here at TSU. Obviously, working hard on the football field on the collegiate level can get you to the professional level if done so. But it all starts in the classroom first. When I was thinking to myself, “What do I want to do if being a football player does not work out?” I thought, staying around sports is what I would definitely like to do. There are many options there, such as coaching, becoming an athletic director, trainer, or even teaching physical education. When looking at the majors that TSU offered, Human Performance and Sports Science, HPSS, was perfect. Although I am not completely sure as to what I want to do for a plan B, I feel as though I am in the right major and position to help me figure out what I might want to do. My dream since I was a little kid was to grow up to be an NFL football player. That is number one on my list and I am going to work as hard as I can to make that dream a reality to make my family proud.
