In regard to my dream job, I have researched and changed my mind time and time again. After thinking over my situation and looking over the abilities that I have, I have reached the aspiration of wanting to become a lawyer.
In order to become a lawyer, you need to have strong and academic qualifications such as A Levels in English Literature, Mathematics, History and so on. Unfortunately, this stands as an obstacle between myself and my dream job. However, I believe that if I attempt to prevail by putting the work in, I will most definitely end up pursuing my ambitions. Due to English being my favourite subject in school, the concept of trying to become a lawyer appeals to me; you have to be articulate in order to be a lawyer.
Initially, I encountered the thought of becoming a lawyer due to many of my friends saying that they could visualise me as one. To add to this, I had recently begun watching a show called How to Get Away with Murder, which is all about the lives of lawyers in action. The professional and sophisticated portrayal of lawyers intrigues me.
Furthermore, the never-ending challenges that many lawyers have to deal with also interests me. I believe that if I were to become a lawyer, I would have to apply my knowledge in order to justify my points, which is basically what you do in English. Although I do quite like English, it can greatly challenge me at times, somehow this leads to an increased determination to better my work.
Another challenge that comes with being a lawyer is having to complete large amounts of work, which I am eventually going to have the strength to do. This will be a significant struggle in my career as I tend to procrastinate a lot. I have contemplated that the opposition’s argument in a case would frustrate most lawyers. However, I thoroughly believe that if someone tries to coherently dismiss your presented argument, you will become even more driven to in turn diminish theirs- through valid points of course. Becoming a lawyer is very difficult to do but I’ll try my best.
