In the past several years, I have had thorough studies on theory and acquired skills, interned in various social agencies, been involved in a social network in Hong Kong, researched elderly and child migrants, and obtained the national qualification certificate to become a social worker. After all of these accumulated experiences, youth consultation and relevant family problem solving have finally become my primary interest. To broaden my horizon and keep pace with more advanced theories and practices of social work, I know I need to step out. I believe pursuing a Master’s degree at Boston College would grant me such a chance, and also offer me a profound insight into social work in America where the development in this field is much more advanced than in China. I would like to gain the following from my professional education. Firstly, I can acquire many new ideas from courses and literature, well-established or controversial, and discuss them with my classmates and brew brand-new ideas by brainstorm. Secondly, I wish to be involved in more internship experience. Despite my practice in my undergraduate years, I still need to do more so as to improve my social work skills. Besides, I hope to get more guidance during my social work practice because only reflection can make practice more valuable. Thirdly, I am interested in participating in research work. I like to do research by experimentation, rather than mere literature research. Fourthly, I would like to deepen my commitment to my values. Boston College, in my view, can offer me what I want. Firstly, BC aims to teach both professionally and academically. By participating in classes and activities, I surely can enhance my abilities in putting theory into practice and improve my self-reflection ability by guidance. Secondly, I share with BC in its social responsibilities of helping the underprivileged population, which is quite lacking in China. I want to feel this responsibility in the community of BC and strive to do more and do better. Thirdly, Master Program of Social work in BC also focuses on diversity. I am convinced that only in such an academic environment can I be exposed to more tolerating academic atmosphere and diverse values and cultivate fertile mind.
I have two goals. One is to become a professional social worker both in research and practice. The other is to intervene independently in youth growth, especially the developmental work for youth, intervention for high-risk youth and family guidance. I sincerely believe that systematic study and social experience at Boston College can turn me into a truly qualified social worker. I will become a more professional social worker and, with my knowledge and skill, I can help those who are in trouble, confusion or need, just like what I did years ago, to accompany them walk through the tough period.
我们选取的是其中申请Boston College用到的文章，对该文章的主人来说，她认为社工需要真诚，需要不断的反思，她说这是最基本的，在这个基础之上才是技巧，有了这个基础，学到了技巧，然后就是不断地付诸实践（practical experience），不断地进行深入的研究（research），唯有此才能成为一名合格的社会工作人员。因此很显然本文即是用了这种思路和方法：她有真诚并有真诚陪伴的案例为证；她有反思意识也有案例佐证；她做了一些实践和研究并且选出了对自己受益最多的重点描述；整篇读来，她有人品、有能力、有专业背景，舍她其谁？
