To answer the question ‘if I could earn a living doing what I love most, what would it be’, I can think of a million completely cliché answers, and unfortunately my truthful response falls under that category. If I could get paid to do what I love most, it would be to help people who are less fortunate than I am. Yes, it sounds completely unoriginal, and yes, it is very ambiguous, but in my personal opinion nothing compares to the feeling of helping others. I also have a love for traveling, and I would adore to be able to travel from country to country. Going along with that, there are many countries that are much less fortunate than America. If I could be paid to travel the world to help people in need, that would be life changing for myself, as well as a small way in helping change the world. I believe that education is the number one way for one to be successful, and if I could use my time here on Earth helping to educate people specifically in third world countries to be successful in whatever way possible, I believe I would be helping change the world. I would love to start my own donation organization for gathering food, clothing, and basic living supplies to donate to these countries. As cliché as the response ‘I want to help others’ is, I believe that people wanting to help each other is the start to changing the world.
