A Few Things to Consider Before Becoming A Social Worker

I was contacted by Elizabeth Xu, freelance writer for the Rasmussen College School of Justice Studies Blog to share some of my thoughts regarding important things to consider before becoming a Social Worker.

You can check out the article at their website:

I was glad to see that my colleague and friend to N.A.H. Deona Hooper was also included in the article to share her experiences. Deona is the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of the online magazine Social Work Helper.

I’m a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities.

“Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian” is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
