Why social work?
After a poverty simulation during my freshman year at Baylor I was forever changed and because of that one lucid experience I changed my major from psychology to social work. There was something that one of the professors always used to quote. She would say the place where we were called was the place where our deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger met. To me, social work is my calling; my deep gladness that can meet the deep hunger of the world.
