A Journey to Social Work - I always received great satisfaction from helping others. I remember at a young age, helping my grandmother with chores that she was no longer able to do for herself. As I got older, my grandmother became more dependent on me. I helped her cook, clean, administer medication and made sure she kept her doctor appointments. I now see myself doing these same things for my mother and father as they get older. I strongly believe that my urge to become a social worker stems from the frightening idea of what would have happened with my grandmother as well as my own parents; had they not had someone helping them....   [tags: Social Work] 1983 words

Various Social Issues - Mid-Term Exam 1. Students have traditionally called attention to social problems by organizing demonstrations, rallies, protests, and debates on their campuses. Throughout the years there have been many issues that have drawn the support of students such as civil rights, economic and political oppression, wars, genocides, and one of the “newer” issues, gay rights/ marriage equality. In today’s society, I believe students will support causes that are relevant to their way of life (supporting the LGBT cause, for / against war in a certain country, as well as other issues such as economic and gender inequality)....   [tags: Social Issues] 1132 words

My Interest in Social Work - Reflecting back on my childhood, I always had a vivid imagination. I would imagine being a doctor, lawyer, or even the first female president of the United States of America. But, I never considered a career in social work. Over the years I realized that I like helping people, but my thoughts of what I wanted to be were indifferent. In high school my counselor had me do a career survey to see what may have interest me. The most common choices were Nursing, Teaching, or becoming a Social Worker. So I went on the Internet and researched as much as I could on each career choice....   [tags: Social Work, career, social workers, ] 1263 words

Social Mobility in the United States - ... Economists latch on to five factors when considering the idea of differences in social mobility: residential segregation, the quality of education, family structure, "social capital", and inequality. The agenda being forwarded here is that social mobility is "higher in integrated places with good schools, strong families, lots of community spirit and smaller income gaps within the broad middle class" (The Economist). The article mostly acts as a re-iteration of Cassidy's views, sprinkled in with an economist's viewpoint, and possible reasoning for why social mobility has become so stagnant in America....   [tags: social issues, social class, capitalism]
