My family is one of the most important parts of my life! I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful family! They have always provided me with love, support, and a firm framework of values. Although I have a close relationship with all my family members, I am closest to my mother. She is my best friend and I trust her with all matters! My mother is the one I turn to with all advice. I greatly respect her thoughts, opinions, and level of professionalism.
I have had the same group of friends for several years. Most of my girlfriends I met during high school and through mutual friends. I am commonly known as the "funny" friend. I often spout out funny comments that make everyone laugh. I am also very caring and nurturing. I have a lot of friends that call me for advice when they are having a difficult time.
My friends are very important to me. We spend a lot of time together and enjoy cutting up and laughing. Although I mostly trust my family when it comes to more serious matter, I know that my friends are always there for me.
A good friendship consist of:
- Strong communication
My relationship is extremely important to me. My boyfriend is not only my boyfriend, but my best friend. We talk about anything and everything and care deeply for one another. He treats me like a princess and I feel lucky to have him in my life. I would consider our relationship healthy. We have strong communication skills and easily work through issues when they arise. We have a lot of respect for one another and treat one another with kindness and love.
I have been working toward my goal of becoming a Speech-Language Pathologist for many years now. Through this process I have had to participate in many outside speech related activities and acquire many observation/volunteer hours. Throughout this process I have met many SLPs, students, teachers, advisors, and friends. They have encouraged me greatly and been very supportive throughout my journey. I am grateful to have met each and every person in this field. They have impacted me and my choices and helped me get to where I am today!
I am fortunate that no one extrememly close to me has passed away. I have lost both of my great grandmother and grandfather, but where I did not see them very often, it did not hit me hard. When I lost my grandfather, it was more difficult, but at the time he was living in Florida and I did not see him very much either. I have so many close relationships that it scares me to think about losing someone I care so much about. I am not sure how I would handle loss, but I could imagine a lot of crying and sadness . I would also need a lot of support and love from family members and close friends. I also think in the position I would seek out counseling or someone who could help me cope with such a great deal of loss.
