My Personal Faith Statement and Vocation Plan
My faith lies with in a Christian Denomination, it teaches decency, integrity, and the love for other people as brothers, sisters and equals. As a Christian, I believe in the existence of God and his Son Jesus Christ. I like reading the Bible on a daily basis because it has good teachings about life and how to coexist with other people. From the teachings that I get from the Bible, I believe in doing good to others and always offering a helping hand whenever I am in a position to assist. I also understand that people can make mistakes as human beings because nobody is perfect. However, the best thing to do is to avoid repeating mistakes or constantly getting into conflicts with others. I believe in the grace and the inspiration to do the will of God. My faith teaches me that my body is the creation of God and therefore there is need to behave with respect and honor.
My beliefs as a Christian, has made me be an organized, self-aware, and structured person who is more focused on bettering my life and the world around me. Since my childhood, I have always demonstrated the desire and the ability to serve in leadership positions. From the days in my elementary school and secondary schools, I have taken up leadership roles in various capacities. My school administrators have always had faith in me as a leader because I used to handle myself with dignity and honor. I can attribute my leadership qualities to my strong faith and having leant basic ideals of life. As a chemistry science student, I have learnt to freely interact with my fellow students as well as the tutors who are often quite dedicated in their work. My faith has taught me how to approach the tutors in a respectable manner when I do not understand any concept in class. Chemistry as a subject has complex concepts that sometimes require close collaboration with the others in order to perform well in class. I believe in respect for others and their different unique abilities. For this reason, I have always engaged in regular group discussions with my classmates where we share knowledge and compare notes. My effective leadership skill has always enabled me to be appointed the group leader every passing semester.
My faith has influenced my vocation as a chemistry science student because it has taught me to be dedicated, disciplined, and focused in my studies while concentrating on the need to show respect to others and treat them as equal human beings. Through our guest speakers, I found the biggest take away was finding a mentor to help lead and guide your path. The path that is taken is not going to a straight and narrow, there are going to be obstacles and detours along the way but in the end, you will end up where you need to be, and it might be where you could have ever imagined. Since I am planning to be an elementary school teacher in future, the dedication will enable me to pass my exams and become a role model to my future students. The profession of teaching is respectable in the society, thus the need to handle myself with dignity and honor. In this regard, my faith gives me direction on how to handle myself and treat others and even how to relate with my students in future when I become a teacher. I believe that with the support of teachers and my strong belief in hard work, I will be able to achieve my dreams and maybe more.
