Many people expect greatness to change the world. I know my parents look at me and expect I will “go far” and be successful. However, I have a different perspective of what greatness means. Greatness is simplicity and humility—“doing small things with great love”. What I love the most is growing in faith and understanding, sharing that with others, and being there for others in their hour of need. By earning degrees in Theology and English, I would love to work in pastoral ministry in a high school; being able to help other young people in the same way I have been supported during the toughest parts of my life. Providing support to someone who cannot find it in a typical family situation, or even having trouble with friends, can make a world of difference to that person. In addition to providing individual support, I would also love to organize retreats and mission trips to help others grow spiritually themselves, and be able to assist those who are in need. Making a difference in the world of individuals’ lives, I hope encourages them to do the same. If I could, I would organize mission trips and pilgrimages to all parts of the world, to be able to make even a small impact where it is need the most. These trips would not only make a small contribution to the lives we assist, but will also hopefully change and inspire the lives of those who attend these trips with me.
