Whether it was buying dinner for a homeless person, aiding a friend in moving from one apartment to another, or simply holding a door open for an elderly person, I have always loved helping others. Add to this my insatiable wanderlust, and it creates a globalized ideal of philanthropy. Of course, these acts in themselves are their own award, but to earn a living in doing so would not only enable me to stay afloat in a rapidly changing world, but also help foster ambitions to take my goals abroad. In order to facilitate this, I have a two-stage plan: first, I will volunteer at local Ohio NGOs such as the CRIS (Columbus Refugee and Immigrant Service) which helps local immigrants and refugees (primarily of Somali origin) in acclimating to life in a land that is not their own. Second, and perhaps more broadly, I plan to pursue a degree at The Ohio State University which will make me more marketable to both governmental and non-governmental entities (such as the Peace Corps. a Foreign Service) where I can lend aid to both foreign nationals and Americans living abroad, respectively.
