Everyone is not given the perfect utilities for a specific job from the beginning of their lives.  Everyone must sharpen their utilities as well as they must gain new skills as they go on for their goals.  I wasn't born with the complete tools needed to be a sustainability specialist.  Like every job with every person, this job does not specifically fit me as a whole.  One of the disadvantages and unskilled areas that are needed for this job and that i do not contain is public speaking.  I have not fully grown to be comfortable with public speaking.  Public speaking is associated with communication with the listeners which is an important tool needed by a sustainability specialist.  One of the advantages i have is want to make this planet a more healthy area.  Though i may not make its fullest potential i would like to have a feeling that i made this place a better place.  That I made home even sweeter.  There are still many disadvantages i have in this job while there are still some tools that i have but still a bit dull to its fullest.  Sustainability specialist will give me the accomplished feeling of sustainability to the enviroment.
