From an early age, my parents have always taught me how to me generous. We travel to Nicaragua, which is where my mom is from, and we give out food and our old clothes and toys to those who don’t have as much as us. I also decided to dedicate one of my summers to volunteering at the hospital, which honestly was one of the best things I could have done. I felt like I was in the correct milieu; like I belonged there. Therefore, the answer to your question is, I just want to help people. If I could earn a living from going to different hospitals and assisting patients and if I could fly to different countries and help the less fortunate, I absolutely would. Although I am just one person, the actions I’m taking will at least improve with lives of a few families. Maybe my actions will even motivate others to do what I love to do and help others and donate, and then the lives of many more families can improve.
