What I love doing the most is hard to condense into a certain activity, but I think that what will explain it best is the acquisition on knowledge. I love to read and learn various new things, particularly, sciences and mathematics. Although I can imagine it would be difficult to make everyone enjoy math and science, it is extremely fundamental in any society. In order to increase the spread of reading and learning, I suggest opening trivial programs with different areas and subjects that have incentives for everyone to enjoy, such as cash prizes or even vacation sites. The spread of knowledge goes back to even the most primitive area in our history and I think it is crucial that we keep that idea alive. We can start by exposing the younger generations to a variety of extracurricular activities and clubs that they can choose, and from that moment, they can decide what they want to learn more about and what does not interest them. I have wasted some of my time in high school not knowing what I want to study and instead, I took classes that did not benefit me at all. This can have a major global impact if we start supporting the idea of reading books and experimenting with different subjects that affect the youth. The spread of ideas can better our future generations and together, we can come up with solutions for diseases, politics, as well as other global dilemmas.
