From the time I was little, I would be asked “What do you want to be when you grow up?”. Answers could vary from a princess, to a teacher, to a fashion designer, and many more. Its funny how when I got asked that question as a little one, I answered a teacher and that is still what I inspire to be. My ideal job would be to travel to countries that are less fortunate than my own to educate children in order for them to be able to improve their living situations in years to come. I think it is important that each and every child in the world has access to a quality education while still keeping their culture and values intact. Educating these children will allow them to open their eyes to the world and be able to make informed decisions for both themselves and their families. If the majority of a countries citizens were educated, powerful over-stepping government would be a thing of the past. For instance, boys and girls in India should be given the same treatment when it comes to receiving an education. Women, too, should learn how to read and write in order to understand what is going on around them. Furthermore, I want to change the world. I want to make education a priority in every country for both boys and girls, and in doing so, that would be my ideal job.
