Why am I a psychologist?
"Growing up I longed to be unconventional. I wanted to be an outlier (Yes, a psychology term :)) and make something of myself. I searched for the space that would allow me to grow roots but something inside had always propelled me to look for the better things before roots  can fully develop. One afternoon I walked by Bond University and wondered what might happen if I slowed down to experience the world and people in it (Because when you are constantly running you mostly discover tiredness and not much else). I stopped running.  I enjoyed studying everything about psychology and learned to appreciate history and those who helped create the stories, even when they had gotten things wrong. But I did not become a psychologist after graduation because I did not think I could. I got scared and ran some more. Without me knowing, I went on to use psychology in teaching, and enjoyed connecting with those who invited me into their developmental journey. Back to where I left off,  I continue to grow my community spirit through contributing in psychology.
