In college, there is an endless possibility of things one may choose to study; business and marketing, medicine, social sciences, biochemistry, you name it! But, there is a prevailing and dominant mindset, demanding that the only purpose for attaining a higher education, in the end, is to make more money; not to inspire others, not to reach out to those less fortunate, not to indulge one’s passion, but to make more money.
If I had the power and the means to make a living to support myself, and was blessed with the ability to do what I love most, I would travel to a desperate country in the heart of Africa and teach at a school, working with the local missions there. In a world so concerned with how their hair looks or affording a new video game, it is beyond easy to forget that all these luxuries are blessings, and that others around the world don’t have the means to afford food at times!
As a course of action, I would first go to college and study English as a Second language. Then, I would research missions currently in the area, seek out new missions, and talk to administrators about how to volunteer to work in these overseas missions. Lastly, I would earn the funds to buy my plane ticket and supplies then set off. This, more than anything, is how I plan to impact the world; by impacting the lives of individuals who live in a broken world.
