Having a role model is something extremely beneficial and inspiring to a child; I desire to be that role model to our next generation of potential leaders and world changers. By becoming a teacher, specifically for schools in low-income neighborhoods, my passion for being an advocate of education will blossom. I love working with children since their imagination and creativity are endless; I can’t wait to begin making a living off something I am destined for. My dream is to guide our succeeding presidents, engineers, doctors, and artists to a bright opportunistic future. Furthering my own education will be my ladder to success and enabling me to enlighten others with my knowledge. During my college career, I plan to work with children by volunteering and gaining experience as a teacher’s assistant. Enrolled in my university’s Whittier Scholars program, I will combine Child Development, Psychology and Education as my major to broaden my mind on different aspects and skills that will help me become the best teacher I can be. I want to pay it forward by teaching our youth, opening their minds and boosting their confidence so that they can recognize they have the ability to make a difference.
