Why I'm an SLP
I always grew up wanting to be a doctor. While in my freshman year of college, I realized I didn't want to go to the 8 years of school to become a doctor. So I decided to go to 7 years instead to become an SLP (okay and skipped all the years and years of training).
My bachelor's is in English linguistics because I love language, speech, sound, and pragmatics (literally the hardest class I've ever taken). I was going to be an editor. Then I realized I couldn't sit at a computer all day and needed more human interaction. My sister suggested I become an SLP, and here I am, 11 years later, branching out.
I love helping people communicate. I know I'm a *little* biased, but I think communication is EVERYTHING. Communication keeps us sane. Communication is how we express our feelings.
Communication keeps us connected.
