And from this information, it is easy to see that this field of profession is not that common. This leads us now to a question: Why I chose social work Basically, social work should be a duty of all capable citizens of a community. But then again, one has to undergo years of social work courses at universities. I have a bachelor's degree in rehabilitative sciences, the reason being why I chose that field is my found fulfillment and pleasure in utilizing my capabilities and assets in working with agencies or with families that are considered less fortunate than I am. I strongly believe that my individual qualities will be further enhanced once I start working in an environment that needs my help, and that requires the qualities that I possess. In addition, I believe that no profession is more fulfilling than helping less fortunate people experience the same treatment rendered to the affluent. It is by profound nature that giving service to others is a very noble work.
In our society today, the different traditional fields are so heaping with individuals who, most likely, possess the very same abilities that their colleagues have, and I want to reiterate that I have absolutely nothing against the fields of science, but wish to insinuate that my standpoint in life is that to make better the lives of people in general, one has to start with the people surrounding him. The very problem of society concerning the plight of the souls who had lost their ways and turned astray. This is not just a mere problem of the Social Welfare Department, but a problem of the whole populace, for the plight of people who are out of the right tracks will reflect the negligence of duty of the whole society. I adhere to the proposition that though an individual is only an individual, he still is a component of a community, the community being the component of a city, and a city is the mirror of the country's soul. My potential contribution, though small, in time will prove to be ample once individuals like me choose this less-traveled path. I choose to pursue masters with the hope that upon earning it, I will be a small but contributing factor in changing the lives of our citizens.
What do you think are the most important issues facing social welfare
In relation to society, I believe that one of the most important issues concerning social welfare is the need for good counseling. It is no doubt that our country has the latest technology in matters concerning the medical field. With development and progress being made every day. But if we look closer at our country's situation, many people are still not able to avail of the ideal services that should be rendered to the general populace. The services offered by the largest and most prestigious facilities are no doubt costly. Since many of us still lack the ability to utilize the services, many still suffer the consequences of being incompletely treated or being untreated at all. It is sad to think that only because of lack of money that many people have to suffer incompetent medical service. For years, thousands of children die of untreated diseases.
