					My Future I Have Chosen


        By Sarah Whittaker
What I have learned about myself

 I really did not think I could learn so much
 about myself. It really surprised me how
 much of my skills and talents I could use in
 my future job. I want to be able to help
 communities by learning about the animals
 and plants there to make the people’s lives
 better. To be a biologist, I believe I can use
 my interest in investigating and love of
 science for the greater good.
My Holland Code
 My results from the Holland Code survey means to me is
 that I want to help people and discover new medicines or
 write music. It tells me that I definitely want to work in the
 science department and keep music in the background of my
 life. I also love history so that can work with me to be an
 anthropologist. My results show me that I don’t want to work
 as a forest fire firefighter, and I most definitely do NOT want
 to work as a hunter and trapper. I mostly want to work in
 labs and conduct studies about the human mind and find
 new ways to make medicines for people who are mentally ill.
 Helping people recuperate from tragedies that have
 happened in their families, or to help an addict get over an
 addiction, really makes me feel as if I have and hopefully will,
 accomplish great feats in my life.
My Top 3 Jobs

1. Biologist
2. Psychologist
3. Musician
Biologist
 Pursuing a career in biology can be immensely
 rewarding and exciting. Studying biology teaches
 us to ask questions, make observations, evaluate
 evidence, and solve problems. Biologists learn
 how living things work, how they interact with one
 another, and how they evolve. They may study
 cells under a microscope, insects in a rainforest,
 viruses that affect human beings, plants in a
 greenhouse, or lions in the African grasslands.
 Their work increases our understanding about the
 natural world in which we live and helps us
 address issues of personal well being and
 worldwide concern, such as environmental
 depletion, threats to human health, and
 maintaining viable and abundant food supplies.
