Professional Summary

Passionate for making a difference, recognized for having strong communicative skills and an intuitive nature at reading people and suggesting accurate treatment plans. I am also bi-lingual in Arabic and English, and continue to pursue my educational CADC studies at County College of Morris where i am fine tuning the 12 core functions. I would like to create positive change to the epidemic of addiction.

Skill Highlights
  • I am applying for an internship in an addictions treatment facility because I have always wanted to make a difference in people's lives. Counseling has always been a passion of mine even within my own family I tend to be the person that everyone comes to for advice or just to be a shoulder to lean on and hear them out when things are rough. I look around and see the rising numbers of addiction fatalities and the unfortunate epidemic in which this country is in due to addiction crisis and it makes perfect sense to me to want to be involved in lending a helping hand to try take control of this epidemic and create positive change. Throughout the process of my CADC work I believe I can do this in a caring and supportive way. I have gained some insight into mental health while supporting one of my close friends endure his daily struggles with drug and alcohol addiction and I have witnessed the effects it has had not only on himself but the tidal wave of effects it has on his immediate family. These personal experiences instilled in me further the desire to become a substance abuse counselor. My educational courses thus far have taught me the different therapies available such as Cognitive Behavioral Theory which has shown me just how important these therapies can be in aiding in an individuals' recovery. I have also learned the great importance of using empathy when working with people. A skill I am very keen on developing. Over the past few years I have learned to set myself realistic goals and focus on achieving them one at a time. By doing this I have always been successful, such as applying to the CADC program with little financial capabilities but with my desire to succeed I applied and received grant money to continue to pursue the education needed. I am a fully dedicated student who is determined to succeed, I will draw from my many different experiences and passion for the subject. This opportunity will fuel my passion for learning about the addiction community, the people around me, but more importantly about myself and how I may use my skills in helping create that positive change.
