MSW Military Social Work Statement of Purpose

Updated: Jun 13

I am a 27-year-old woman of Mexican heritage and was raised in the troubled environment of South-Central Los Angeles. My early environment was a spur to me to take advantage of all the opportunities open to me and to try to help others to do the same, it also resulted in a desire to help others. I am mature, self-motivated, compassionate, empathetic, independently minded and possess excellent communication skills. I have undertaken a significant amount of voluntary work involving, for example, helping seniors and ‘special needs’ children in various activities and escorting veterans who are confined to wheelchairs.

During my time at XXXX University, I was a member and active participant of a sorority heavily involved in community service. I have also been employed as a Primary Intervention Program Aide, which involved assisting students, up to third grade, who were experiencing school adjustment difficulties.


Through my 9 years of service with the Californian Army National Guard, I have developed a deep interest in the welfare of those serving and of fellow veterans, and their families. I hope to be able to undertake research in the areas of military social work and veteran services with the goal of becoming a commissioned Behavioral Sciences Officer in the National Guard.

In addition to my exposure to other cultures during my upbringing in California, my military service has extended this during service in Germany, Kosovo, Albania, and Montenegro. I also traveled to several other European and South American countries during periods of Rest and Recreation. These experiences have left me with an understanding of the effects of culture on individuals and the need to take cultural background into account in relating effectively to others.

I am a caring person, and my goal is to contribute to the well-being of others, to help people to function more effectively, to assist in bringing about beneficial social changes, in short - to ‘make a difference’. I feel that my background, personal qualities, academic achievements to date and my varied life experiences provide an excellent basis for me to profit from the program for which I am applying and will equip me to achieve my goals.
