Hi Shayla R,

I personally believe, social work is all about finding your own happiness.
When you help someone in anyway small or big and that bring happiness in you that's a social work.
When you do something for someone and that helps them in any small way but you do not expect any thing from them that's a social work.
Social work is a passion which bring joy in you and others if it's done in right way.

If you are interested in social work, I would suggest you to join some NGO and explore and work with them and then see if that's bring joy in you or you can also start with small steps .

Hope this helps
All the best Shayla R

Social work is a very diverse field. A lot of people think social work is just working for DHS and removing children from their homes. While working at DHS is an option as a career choice for social work, its just one option. Social workers work in hospitals, a variety of different agencies and settings, therapy for agencies or in private practice, working for the military, being a program director, etc. Lots of different options and avenues!
