If I could earn a living doing what I love most, it would be owning my own business, being a CEO of my own corporation. I want to own my own chain of restaurants, but not fast food. My restaurants would be the way they used to be no more large plates with a smaller portion and a big price tag. People would get what they would pay for, my employees would not hate going to work, they would be paid well, they would be treated well. It would not be all our country needs, but my biggest dream is to get my business going so well that it creates a spark in the country and our economy starts flowing again.
I have lived on a farm all my life and since I could walk I have been working, that’s how we were raised. As soon as I turned 16 I unlike many teenagers today had no choice but to get a job, not that I minded I love to work, it gives me a sense of worth. I am now 18, and the first person to graduate high school on my father’s side of the family. I have had many jobs, all minimum paying jobs which I did not expect more I am still young but I still dream of big jobs and making enough money that I’m not forced to live paycheck to paycheck.
My goals are not so much dreams or hopes anymore as they are more of a reality, I start college on September 2nd of this year for Business Administration and Management. Although it is expensive and complicated to pay for I am going to do it and do all I can to reach my dreams. My step by step goals are as follows; apply all I can for fasfa, grants, scholarships, continue working, go through college and get my degree, start my life and live as well as possible.
I have had jobs all my life that I have hated, but you have to do what you have to do, correct? Once I am done with all my years of schooling, no matter how long it takes me in the end I will wake up everyday happy because I have a career that I am happy to wake up for in the mornings. Being an example to my children one day that you can make it happen if you are willing to work for it, any dream and become a reality.

Thank you for your time,
Lindsey
