Abstract: A central message in the Harry Potter series is choice and how Harry’s choices defined who he was and helped him navigate good from evil, right from wrong and where his loyalties lied. Specifically, Dumbledore tells Harry, “It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” Having the ability to make choices separates us from other species and being able to make professional choices separates us within economic and social classifications especially in relation to having control of your circumstances. Choice also comes with ethical considerations within a profession and how that profession is coveted by stakeholders and those with cross discipline relationships.
