If I could earn a living doing what I love the most it would be working with children. I’ve always been able to connect and easily get along with kids of all ages. My dream would be to teach young underprivileged kids, teaching things such as english, grammar, and basic math. This would change the world by preparing these kids who may have not had any other way of gaining the knowledge I would have taught them. With these kids better prepared they would have more of a chance at being successful in life, and having the ability to continue learning if that’s what they wanted to do. Not only would they be gaining knowledge that would make them smarter but they would use what I taught them in every day life, reading signs, counting money, etc. Goals that would need to be set in order to achieve this would be to get the money to travel to the children, obtaining all the materials I would need in order to be successful, and making sure to make a personal connection with each and every child.
