“Mom, when I grow up I want to be as tall as that tree!
– Anastasia Postolati, Age 5
I realize that unfortunately, I will never be as tall as that particular tree I was pointing at but I’m willing to settle for 5 feet 5 inches. Instead, I have other goals that I plan to achieve in the near future.
My goal for the next 3 summers before graduation is to acquire an internship and work for a strong company that will help me expand my experience in the field of Marketing and Management Information Systems. I am looking to complete challenging projects in an innovative culture that will help me learn and grow. I want my newly acquired skills to aid me in making an impact in the world once I graduate.
After graduation, my plan is to start working at a job that I truly like. There are too many people in the world that are not happy with their jobs and I do not wish to be a part of that group. My careful budgeting through college will help me graduate with as little debt as possible. On a personal note, I’d like to start a family and do a fair amount of traveling around the world.
In 10 years I want to grow within the company I work for or possibly have a job different from the one I got after graduation. I am also open to an opportunity to relocate and take on a position that I have never been in before to really push my limits. At 28, I want to be a self-reliant woman with a big family and no mortgage payments who lives happily within her means.
