"I am studying for my BA in Psychology in order to work with returning veterans."
I spent three years as an EMT in terror-stricken Jerusalem in the late 1990s. I witnessed unspeakable horrors, and have carried those images in my mind for the last fifteen years. I suffered from severe PTSD. My life fell apart. My marriage failed, I couldn't keep a job and I attempted suicide. Over the years, through intensive treatment, I have begun to realize what it means to really live. I am studying for my BA in Psychology in order to work with returning veterans. I feel that they are an underserved population, and I want to use my experiences to help others. I see my life as a success because I rose from the ashes of failure to a bright future of helping others in need.
