My passion for education and for learning was the driving force for me to return to school when I was 23 years old. Initially I wants to become a theater teacher at the high school level, but that is a dying art with budget cuts and the economic recession. I’ve decided that the next best route was double majoring in English and Education with a minor in Theater.
In doing this, I will now have the ability to effect the lives of young people the way that my teachers affected me. I will educate people and tell them to never give up on their dreams. If they can believe it, they WILL achieve it. I want young people to know that they can be whatever they want to be with hard work. I want a child to know that they will be the next man on the moon or the next great fashion designer or the President of the United States. Maybe with inspiration and a strong shoulder on their side one of my students will one day find a cure for Cancer.
Young people need the opportunity to reach for their dreams. They don’t need to have someone tell them their dream is impossible or that they will fail. Anything is possible. Anything.
