Hi everyone! Classes started for me this past week, and with that I decided I would talk a little about my major. Monday was the first day of my classes that are completely centered on my major, which I am super excited about.
For those of you who do not know I am majoring in speech and hearing sciences. My plan is to get my masters in speech language pathology and my doctorate in audiology. I plan to specialize in a few things, but as of right now I am planning on working with children and veterans.
I originally decided to major in speech language pathology, because of my experiences in speech therapy. I was very blessed to have a great speech therapist, and was able to correct my lisp in a short amount of time. I want to be able to make a difference in someone else’s life the way my speech therapist did for me.
A few months into my major I decided I also wanted to be an audiologist. After becoming more familiar with cochlear implants and hearing loss I realized that this was my ultimate goal, and that I wanted to be an audiologist. I wanted to see the excitement people feel when being able to hear clearly again for the first time in their life.
I love my classes so far, and look forward to the rest of the semester. I also am looking forward to completing my major and starting to work in this field. What inspired you all to choose your majors? Let me know in the comments below!
