Probably helping people, that’s probably why I chose human services and justice.
I’m in my fourth year, right now I am doing a major of criminology, so next semester I’ll be doing a placement for my human services. That will be interesting, I’m just waiting for it.
When did it occur to you that you wanted to study in human services and social justice?
