One day I hope to travel the world helping people and impacting their lives. With a degree in Law, specifically international affairs, I could be an influence in the uniting of peoples and their governments. Improving poverty, job, and crime rates greatly affects a community. Through legal channels, I believe that I can improve living standards and encourage benevolent relationships between currently hostile countries. I would love nothing more than to improve the world one person at a time. I want to not only help people but to also understand people: their language, their culture, and their way of life. But making a general impact is not enough. I want to personally impact people and their lives: travel around the world and directly communicate with those in need. Sadly, a career of helping people presents problems. A law degree is expensive to obtain and in a field associated with human services a well paying career can be hard to establish. Though I know these goals will be hard to attain I believe in myself. I begin my battle at Michigan State University where I will gain an undergraduate pre-law degree focusing on international affairs. I will continue to learn the German language and partake in a semester abroad to Germany to enhance my communication skills. I will begin leaning Russian and Latin. I will then continue towards my graduate degree, hopefully from the University of Michigan. Lastly, I will intern all over the world and establish myself with local governments.
