Danaisha has a Life Plan!
All my life I have had a plan set out for me. My life plan has changed a little bit but it has stayed in the same direction. Here is my life plan! Usually the average fourteen year old is worried about boys or friends etc. But me, I am worried about different things. I'm more interested in passing a test and making money - something a fourteen year old shouldn't be worried about. Or should they? I wouldn't know, I can only speak for me.
But I think I should start off with how I got ahead of all the things I shouldn't be worried about. My mom was very helpful, she helped plan through anything that I might have trouble with in my lifetime. What jump-started this was when I started doing my work and listening (yes, I still had friends and I would still hang out with people, I just knew when it was time to work).
So one day I was doing research for my Exploring Careers class. I had to find out what my interest where, what I liked to do for a hobby etc. I loved to be professional, on time, and prominent. It took some time but I figured out that I wanted to pursue my career in business management. I decided this because I like to be in charge of things and get things done. I also wanted to make sure that I had good money. And since my parents were in the military, I felt I wanted to keep on the tradition. I decided I want to get a job in Air Force for Communications Technology, they make around $48,000-$125,000 a year which I thought that would get me a good head start.
But first I have to plan for college, good thing I've already done that. I want to get a trade from college and build off my trade. I would join the military so that they can pay for college and I can get good benefits. After getting my bachelors, I would like to continue my education with a Master’s in business management.
When you plan ahead you are doing the best thing you can do for your education and future. When I planned this I felt like there was a weight lifted off my shoulders.
