This is going to be a difficult one, so maybe we can work together since this is an autobiography of when I was younger and my career right now. I will tell you a little bit about myself right now.

When I was younger, my mom was my biggest influence. she advocated for me when I was little, because my elementary school teacher wanted to put me in special education because I had a hard time comprehending what I read. My mom was in the military when I was little, so it meant a lot for her to take the time out of her day to advocate for me. I didn’t end up going to the special education classes.

I have always wanted to work with disabled people ever since I could remember. I don’t have a specific memory, but its always been a soft spot in my heart for it. Maybe its because I have a learning disability that makes me want to help others, but it’s something I’ve always wanted to do.

Growing up, I loved to pretend I was injured and walk around hurt, because I wanted to play doctor and help the injured. I volunteered a lot with the special education class when I was in school. One of my best friends was actually disabled and had cerebral Palsy, but she had a very sweet personality and got along very well. It made me sad when others made fun of her.

My career now is being in the military. The career I am placed in, is not my number one choice, but I do get to socialize with different people. My job right now is inspecting gear for aircrew members that fly on aircraft. My ideal career is to work in a rehab facility and help those who cannot help themselves. Right now, I will be staying in the military until I retire, but I am hoping to get my Bachelor’s degree and work in rehabilitation in the near future.

The 3 theories from my textbook that we can incorporate into the paper for my job are the Myers-Briggs type theory, Holland’s theory of types, and Work adjustment theory. Please ask me any questions that you feel may help with this paper. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
