If money was not an issue, I would be a non-profit tutor in prison during the week and run a landscaping company during the weekends. I don’t love prisons, but the thought of having an impact on people that society has deemed irredeemable is absolutely rewarding. To get my idea into motion, I would contact the local penitentiary and offer my tutoring services. Five days a week I would teach purely academic courses as well as financial management and courses covering trade skills. Textbooks and classrooms would be free of charge, provided that prisoners show a passion for self-improvement. As for my weekend endeavors with landscaping, I would hire workers straight out of prison to help them get their lives straight. I believe that by doing this I could duly impact society for the better and stop many former convicts from returning to jail.
To accomplish this dream, I obviously need to have strong academic prowess and a coherent teaching style. On top of that, I need to be able to gain respect and trust in the prison. So I take a lot of classes, get a few degrees, I’m book smart. I spend some time as an assistant professor or tutor, I can relay information now. I commit a few petty crimes, maybe sell some dope, construct a story of how I turned my life around, I have respect. And that, is exactly how I would contribute to the world if money were not an issue.
