When my parents immigrated to America, our nation was known as the land of the dreams where education was the key to unleash the chains of social inability; however, within the past thirty (or even more) years, our nation fell in the grasps of Capitalism and systematic structures. My parents and I really care about education, thus, I am going for Education Policy. Working for the government (either at a state or federal level education department), or even with IBM, I want to help schools create a better learning environment for our children. I would not only change our education structures in America, but would finally put USA back in the map, as the nation where our dreams and meritocracy can actually come into reality.

Until now, I have been accomplishing my goals by attending Wabash College, whom, according to US News, is ranked as the fifty-seven institution in the National Liberal Arts Colleges ranking. I recently got my Humanities major approved, so I will be focusing in English Second Language learning as my graduation project. If everything goes well, I would be doing Teacher for America, or another teaching program. Following that, I want to go to Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Airs or University of Texas Lyndon B Johnson School of Public Affairs. Wherever I end up, I know my hunger for change will somehow change our education system once and for all.
