People please stop commenting over every single act of mine saying “OMG… Being a social work student how can you do this”…

Being a social work student doesn’t make you a real social worker actually… Its just a platform where you could find the areas to work and its upto the individual and what really matters in Social work is not the mere degree but THE PASSION that’ll drive us ahead…
