Why social work? Social work provides an opportunity to work toward something greater than myself. I could never be satisfied in a profession that does not allow me to use my talents and skills to make a meaningful impact on the life of another person. This profession provides the broadest range of career opportunities to achieve this. When I grow older and look back on my life, I want to know that the small steps I have taken throughout my professional career have made a profound impact on the well-being of both individuals and communities.
