Felicia Mitchell’s Personal Plan for success
My Goals I will put my career goal first as to place my academic goal in a better light. Career Goal My ultimate career goal is to work with Law Enforcement. My long-term vision is to work for the FBI. This career involves multiple languages, giving testimonies, taking victims and witness statements, and investigating various crimes but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. During my last year of college, I would prefer to be working or interning with a law enforcement agency. It would be outstanding to get the opportunity to work with law enforcement. I would love to get some hands-on experience before I graduate, as to know the facts instead of just imagining how everything will work and how investigations go. My primary motivation for following this goal is the need to help others. While I love helping people, it’s intrinsic for me to want to help them is anyway I can, I’m good at helping others. My extrinsic motivation on the other hand is that I’d like to have enough money to pay rent. The attitude I have towards most people is a bit cold, I need to work on that. I also prefer books over people, but that’s something I hope will never change. I love to learn new things so this career makes this a journey that is sure to be insightful. Academic Goal My main academic goal is to graduate college with at least 3 A’s and I can deal with some B’s. I plan to study, work hard and understand the material I am reading or working on, if I don’t, I have people or the internet to ask if need be. One reason I want this academic goal is a bit of a selfish reason. I don’t want people to get hurt in anyway, but I don’t want them to grow up like me. My biological father is a felon and when I was sixteen, I got a restraining order on him for child abuse and domestic violence. I will fight so that no one has to do what I had to. The amount of court dates was enormous along with therapy.
My main motivation for the Criminal Justice course is I enjoy helping people and its intrinsic to me. I don’t want to help people after they get hurt because I don’t want them to get hurt in the first place. If I can save people with what I know, or save them by putting someone behind bars, then there was never a different route to begin with. My extrinsic motivation is that my chose of this academic goal is unnatural to my family. The motivation I have gotten from people around me after telling them that I got into college is phenomenal. I am getting so much encouragement from so many people. My old high school secretary gave me congratulations, my old boss was so proud of me, my step-sister is supporting me fully along with my step-dad. I haven’t told my brother yet but I know he will be thrilled. The motivation hat others have shared with me inspires me to go forward with my goals and succeed.
