Career Path

For my career path i would like to be a FBI Agent. I feel like the world needs more protection and rules to function. I like the way things work and how people work together to do certain assignments. A FBI Agent pretty much takes their job seriously which is what I want. I want more people to feel safe when their home or in public. Too many people are doing bad things and i want that to be an end.

My long term goals are to get a degree and work hard at what I do. There are so many people that waste their time at work but that's not what I want. I want to live my life with the career I love. I want to be successful when I'm older and make my dad proud. I also don't want to struggle when I'm an adult and have to work even harder than I need to.
