If I could earn a living doing what I love most, it would be helping the poor who are in need of attention. When I was a child living in Torreon, Mexico I would attend religious retreats with my church. During one of the retreats I was especially moved by the people whom we went to help. They were a tribe that lived in mountains a couple of hours from my hometown. I have never seen poverty like this before and I was moved by how content and full of life they were. It was then that I hoped to one day come back and help the poor in my country as much as I could. I believe this would change the world because I believe that acts of kindness are needed in order for the world to change. I believe that faith in humanity can be restored simply by recognizing differences and valuing those differences. Although my acts may not change the world I know for a fact that they can change the world for one person and that is enough to motivate my dream. To achieve this goal I would have to attend college, get a medical degree or humanitarian degree. I would then go back to my hometown and visit the people whom I once met, and start helping them and teaching them different ways of life or simply bringing supplies to them.
