If I could I earn a living doing what I love the most it would be writing. Specifically, I would be a political reporter. I would educate others about foreign affairs and policies, especially policies of or affecting third world countries. An international policy that I have been closely monitoring affects the Island of Hispaniola, which is home to both Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Last September, a Dominican Republic court ruled that any person born in the Dominican Republic after 1924 to a non-Dominican will have their citizenship revoked. This law will greatly affect those who were born in the Dominican Republic to Haitians parents. As a result of their citizenship being revoked, they will be stripped of their birth certificate and identification card and will no longer be able to vote or hold a job. I would shed a light on this problem and other problems that restrict the rights of human beings due to corrupt government leadership in hope that it would spark a change. I would get my bachelors degree in journalism and my masters’ degree in government and politics so I could be an effective political reporter.
I hope that with degrees in both journalism and government and politics, I could change the social, economic, and political infrastructures of third world countries, thus benefiting our society. I would hope that my news reporting will create new jobs and businesses, bring about tourism and democracy, and lead to changes in education in developing nations around the world.
