Changing the world is an enormous undertaking. I strongly believe in the words of Mother
Teresa, who knew that she alone could not change the world, but she could cast a stone across the waters creating many ripples. I plan on developing a world of positivity and encouragement for children simply by doing what I love most. I have a heart for helping underprivileged children gain an education that will ultimately help them break down the vicious cycle of poverty overtaking our cities. This burning desire to bring hope to the hopeless can be made possible by pursuing an education of my own and earning a bachelor’s degree at Kent State University. I am in love with learning and sharing my knowledge and passion with children. In order for inner city children to go out and cast their own stones, they need someone to individually care about their education. I am that person. The simple task of learning to read was a luxury for me, and I am eager to take that gift and pass it on as the key that unlocks these children’s bright futures. By volunteering in local schools and pursuing my goal of being a public school administrator, children, who before could only dream, will have the reality of going to college and having a career before them. If just one child takes his or her education and passes on the knowledge to another, my dream of bettering public education will begin to transform the world.
