Potential is a burden uneasily carried until it is fulfilled. As I have been aware of my own ability to think and reason, I have been aware of my potential. Whether or not the potential actually exists does not matter. The fact that there is a possibility that it exists leads me to search for a way to fulfill my potential. Along the way, there are many roads but, not all reach potential’s destination. Still, I have traveled those roads willingly and am the better for it for now I stand at the threshold of an opportunity to fulfill my potential. It is my goal to go beyond the traditional boundaries of established criteria to investigate the linkages between social phenomena and behavior by melding creativity with critical thinking and moving the theoretical into the realm of practicality. This is my potential, if, I have the strength to lift it.
