I’ve been singing and playing guitar for almost ten years now and I’ve loved every second of it. When I was eighteen years old, I started singing and playing for the local church because it was the only way I knew how to express my love for God and how He had changed my life. I understand that religion is a sensitive topic for a lot of people, but there are also a lot of others out there, who live in third world countries, that don’t even know what religion is. Religion is faith and faith is hope. If they have so little to live off of, they should at least be able to understand God and Religion to benefit their happiness. So if I could do what I loved to do most, which is to sing and play guitar, I would travel to third-world countries in Africa and perform in different villages to inspire happiness and faith in people who desperately need it. In order to do so, I would save up money for a plane ticket, travel expenses, and a camera to document the success. As a result, I feel that it would change the world in hopes of civilians being inspired enough to pay it forward as well as inspiring and teaching the rest of the world that hope never fails and if you have it nobody can shape your happiness.
