As soon as I saw this essay I was intrigued. I started typing before I had even finished a complete thought about what I love to do and how I could change the world by doing it for a living. I wrote multiple different essays on my passions for working with children, soccer, my family, and making people happy. These are a few of the many things that I unequivocally and wholeheartedly love.
Before I came across this essay topic, I did not have much direction in my life. I was going to college to get a degree in math (something I am good at, but not necessarily LOVE), but I had no idea where I was going with this degree. I had been working at a summer camp for my second consecutive summer and I had never been happier in my life than the days I spent working with those children. Therefore, one of my many essays began something like this, “If I could earn a living off of working with children, I would do it in a heartbeat.” It was not until I finished the essay that I realized my passion and vocation in life. I am destined to teach and make the world a better place with my passion for helping children grow, learn, and be happy.
I realized in the midst of a scholarship essay that I need to change my direction in life and my major, and become a teacher.
