    I dont know this would depend on what you consider the community considers role models. Be a Teacher or something.

Then from there you can take an exam and basically shut your soul in a locker for the next 20 years... depends on how motivated you are to make everyone around your unhappy. Of course you could be that diamond in the rough and make everyone happy. IF your extra special you get hand selected by someone and you become an immortal being at the top of an ice mountain somewhere in Queens or Manhattan.
      What do you mean by what I highlighted in bold?

        I literally meant nothing by it and that's why I deleted the comment.

          The one thing that throws me off is that there's not a lot of men in that field. Besides, I'm capable of going further out of my comfort zones in a tougher job--I just don't know where else to look.

                Then you have MUCH to learn. You’re very unfocused.
                Now go home and get your shine box!

                  But there is one thing I'm focused on, which is what I stated before. The only thing is that I don't know where to look, especially if it's likely my past psychological history would bar me from joining the cadets. What are some things I still need to learn?

                    Be a firemen, with that on your record you don't have a chance of being a cop anywhere. If you were a psych or background investigator would you pass someone who has that on their record? when there are literally thousands of candidates who don't have that flaw on theirs.

                      I thought I'd also have a DQ from that...

                    I'm quite skeptical about considering any job with the FDNY since I never looked to them as a viable place to establish a career I aim for. I remember a long time ago I got a call from them to take the firefighter exam but declined, since their offerings have failed to attract my interest, whether it's putting out fires or working as an EMT. And I was hardly surviving off a minimum wage, full-time job at the time. If I'm not mistaken I bet all of those men who put out flames have huge muscles--quite frankly, I just a skinny man who's not very muscular. And I have little confidence I'll be able to move quickly in a heavy fire suit.

                    Besides, what kinds of leadership skills can I learn from those positions?

                      You must be trolling.

                    • rb1152013 In case you didn't read my other post for you, I quoted it here:

I looked into the police force not only as a way out of my comfort zones, but also to prove myself--and my family--that I have the strength and will to do the demands of a really tough job. Trust me, I have a clean background and have never done drugs, and I have had a high GPA in college as well. I also never drank alcohol in my entire lifetime. If you're telling me it's likely I won't make the cut due to my past suicidal thoughts, where else should I look to reveal my fullest potential and move out of my comfort zones? Tbh, sometimes I tend to frown upon less demanding careers because they make me feel "weak" compared to my peers, for lack of a better word.
                      I wasn't trolling, all I wanted was to know an ideal alternative to the police force in which I can still go beyond my comfort zones, use my fullest potential, and learn leadership skills through the concept of serving the community. You mentioned that my past psychological history would disqualify me from the cadets, so I needed other ideas where I can still get what I'm looking for. Compared to my peers, taking a less demanding career just makes me feel--for lack of a better word--"weak."

                      However, I'm not sure if the fire department would work for me.

                      • Nothing is going to work for you. Sanitation isn't posh enough for you, Fdny offerings don't make you happy, too many women work in education. Nothing is good enough. There is no answer to your question. More importantly you have not considered if you would even be a good fit for the Police let alone them have things that appeal to you.

                        • If you want to be a role model you can do that in any job.

                            But I don't know how that's possible, especially since I feel some jobs don't give you the chance to work your way up the ranks and learn how to be in charge--something I look for in a career I would want to pursue.

                              Go work at a UPS warehouse...Don't even consider becoming a driver there because there's no leadership there. Start as a loader, and quickly become a supervisor within months. You'll be overwhelmed with responsibilities and leadership - that I promise you. It's very hard work. You can continue to move up and up and the higher you go the more you are responsible for.
