My joy in life is doing what we do subconsciously all day everyday, talking. I love being able to talk to people and hearing about their insights and different perspectives in life. I love learning from others experiences and being able to see the world in a different way. My dream job would be being able to talk to people all around the world and help them with there problems by advising or even just being the one that listens because sometimes everyone just needs a friend. I feel that my enthusiastic and bubbly character allows people to open up around me and feel free to engage in any conversation. As a society, if we were able to understand what others are going through and diminish the blurred lines of all types of discrimination, we could rise up and have less hatred. That’s what I wish I could do. Even if I am an African American Muslim young women, I can still reach out to the older Caucasian Protestant man and we could converse about our differences and similarities to show that we all are more interconnected that it seems. Then being able to share his story with whomever else I come by, if that could be an actual job I would be happy to wake up for work every morning.
