Every child deserves to to paint, play a sport, read or play an instrument or at least have the learning opportunity available if they desire. If I could give kids around the world the opportunity to discover their talents, then my life would be brightened through sharing my love for watching others succeed. Some might argue that there are more important things kids all over the world need including water, food, shelter, etc. Although these hold undeniable importance, we cannot forget that children need happiness and personal growth. They need to love who they are and discover a reason to be proud of themselves, which is something more important than materialism. To give this gift to kids all over the world and make my dream a reality, I would need a dynamic team with a common goal.
Motivation is the most important part of accomplishing a task, and there is no greater motivation in my life than working with others for the betterment of others. My team would need to be a unique group of people from all walks of life but who share a passion for helping kids achieve their goals. Funding would undoubtedly be required for this undertaking, but money is there. My team and I would unceasingly write letters to sports franchises, celebrities, and learning institutes all over the world asking for piecemeal donations. Help is contagious, and I hope that this project’s central theme would be reciprocated throughout the world, making it a better place.
