If I were given the opportunity to earn a living by doing what I love most, that living would be achieved through taking trips around the world and delivering speeches of positive empowerment. Unlike most people, I gain confidence when I speak in front of large crowds and a wave of satisfaction overcomes me once I realize that people are engaged in my thoughts. Whether the goal is to persuade or inform my audience, my comfort level rises when I deliver speeches. I also have obtained a desire to see others do well and become successful in their aspirations. As I continue to mature, I find myself intentionally surrounding my friends with more positive aspects that life can offer. What I gain in return from these moments with my friends, is a shared sense of compassion and drive for lifestyles that we only hoped to achieve, growing up as kids. Personally, I feed off others’ reactions of determination and become even more uplifted myself. By traveling across the world and delivering my speeches of empowerment, I intend to motivate people and promote positivity in compliance toward goal setting and reaching. In order for me to make this dream a reality I would first have to establish myself in the US, and gain the support of my fellow Americans. I would also film my speeches and create a website as well as a YouTube channel account so my videos can be streamed globally, and made available in any desired translation.
