I mashed up my Interests to direct me down my own road. Take the Roadmap quiz for yourself!
Being Physically Acive
Environment & Nature
Philosophy & Religion
My dream is to live my life with purpose. No matter how much noise i constantly hear or how many times people try to make me feel bad because of certain goals I want to accomplish, I will learn to block out the noise. Whether I have supporters or not, I will make sure to always make the best out of my decisions knowing that my choices will get me further than their opinion ever will ever get me. I want to succeed in all my life goals, as well as knowing I did everything that made me happy and successful at the end of the night.
Border Patrol Agent.

What type of route did this leader take?
"It was straightforward."
"It took a while to figure out."
"I tried everything."
Leader's Work Life
An average day for my leader consist of attending JR. Highs, High Schools, Colleges and Universities. He goes to these schools and informs students about Border Patrol and tells them when it started and answers any questions they may have. He also sets up student interviews such as this one for Road Trip Nation.
He didn't hear any noise he had support 100% through out his journey.
Advice from my Leader
"You should strive for higher education and gain experience before applying to the Border Patrol. It'll serve you well and put you ahead of the competition." -Agent Steve Rodriguez
The most important thing I learned was you can't sound nervous. You have to know what your going to say and sound very confident talking to whoever answers the phone whether it's a shift manager or the main manager. They want you to get straight to the point and be prepared for any questions they might ask you as well. I also learned that you may not get a call back the first time around and you might not even get a call back.
Before and After
Before my leader interview I thought I might not be meant for this career, I may have to look for another career that accepts me with the background I come from. Now I realize that no matter my family history my impression during the interview determines if they feel they should trust me or not.
