If I could earn a living doing the thing I love most, I would be a politician who stood for equal rights for all. I would argue on the side of those who are underrepresented, still fighting for rights, and going through difficult times. Just because someone is of a different religion, sexual orientation, gender, or race does not mean that they deserve fewer than those in the majority. I would work to make sure everyone was on equal ground, especially in their basic education. This would help students, the future of our country, stand up for what they believe in, do what they love, and be educated about the world in general. As of now, white women make seventy-seven cents for every dollar a man makes; African-American women make sixty-nine cents for every dollar to African-American man; Latina women make fifty-eight cents for every dollar to a Latina man. While women are doing the same amount of work, they make less than their male counterparts. That would just be the start of what I would want to fix to make the world a better place. Those who are not heterosexual can still not marry in some states and have less job protection than their heterosexual counterparts. This was something I would also work on fixing. I believe that I would be able to help these changes get in motion as a politician.
