I don't want to be underemployed or stuck in a job below my skill set. Another reason I am pursuing my graduate studies is in hopes of obtaining a fulfilling position in criminal justice that will also help me meet my financial and family obligations.

In this essay I am going to explain key influences on the learning process of individuals.
