If I could earn a living doing what I love most, it would be loving others. My job would be putting a smile on a person’s face and helping their day become a little brighter. Yes, I know this sounds incredibly cheesy, I totally understand. But what I would like to be understood is that my summer was spent walking into a boys and girls club, filled with 80 children off of the worst road in Nashville, TN. I knew those children for barely 5 minutes before I noticed they had smiles that flowed throughout their whole body and made anything I may have lost worth it. Every day I walked in and was pounced on by kids laughing with more joy than I’d ever seen; joy that flowed into me. That’s why I want to love others. That is what I mean when I want to help children have more happiness in their lives, because they deserve it. They didn’t deserve the conditions they lived in everyday on Dickerson Road in Nashville, but they did deserve every little ounce of love I was able to provide and much more. I have been inspired to transition this into a career through obtaining a masters in Social Work to work in the school system with the children who aren’t getting what they need in their homes. I will not claim that this is going to change the world, but it will change at least one life and that is enough.
