That’s my long term goal. My plan for achieving that goal is as follows:
I have been doing research for 6 years online on this wonderful website that has been the most helpful during my journey of wanting to study Primates. While researching I have realized that, without experience, it would be impossible for me to take an internship, job, or even volunteer position without having saved a hefty amount of money for housing and food, etc. Most of those positions don’t pay and I am broke as shit right now, dealing with about $20,000 of student loans.
If I get a Masters in Education I could teach abroad [specifically at a University in Kurdistan] and make $100,000/yr + government housing and a private driver.
If I pursue a Masters and do this I could go there for a few years and have enough saved to pay off my student loans and then either get a Masters in Primatology or just move somewhere in Africa, Europe, or Asia to intern, volunteer, or research.
So that’s what I need to do to achieve my goal. The good thing is my student loans will be deferred if I go back to school.
Now…to get into grad school with my shitty GPA…..is my issue.
