Take Lessons Scholarship
July 25, 2014
According to a massive report released by Gallup, 18 percent of Americans hate their jobs, and 52 percent of Americans feel just plain blah about their jobs (Forbes). These statistics reveal that many people are not doing what they love to earn a living. I realized that even though I like my bartending job it’s not my dream. I don’t love bartending because it does not allow me fulfill my love for making a difference and being an inspiration for the youth of tomorrow. To make this dream a reality I have already begun to take action to achieve this goal. I was entangled in that career rut that many people experience and because I was doing well financially, it seemed like a huge risk changing careers. However in 2010 I decided to go back to school to continue my education for a little inspiration of my own. Going back to school made me discover how many teachers throughout my life helped me realize my potential and taught to pursue my dreams and never give up. Then the light went off and I knew that becoming an educator will allow me to do what I love the most, make a difference and inspire youth. It will also allow me to change the world because I know that if I can inspire one child to inspire another and so forth then I can create a web of inspiration for our future.
