I would be a lawyer if I could earn a living doing what I love the most. With this job, I would have the opportunity to help others through the income I would receive. I have always enjoyed helping others. I think it is the most rewarding thing in the world. Knowing that I can do something to help others, and the impact it can have on their daily lives is a sort of purpose for me.

Through this and the donations of others, I would like to open a non-profit organization aimed at helping children in Sub-Saharan Africa who suffer greatly from the effects of poverty. Children are the most vulnerable; they consist of the generation that could change the way things are in Sub-Saharan Africa. If there is no ways to help them, most people will still struggle to live out there.

In this way, knowing that some children cannot even have a decent meal per day, I would provide them with food in order for them to have a decent living. I would also like to open centers that would teach those children the basics in life and a career for when they would get older.

In order to do this, I would need to finish my education, and this starts with being able to pay for it. I really hope I would be able to win this scholarship, because it would really help me to move towards my dream.
