I was born into a family embedded with a love for history, a love for politics, and a love of helping others. It is my dream to work as a politician, serving my community, and one day my country, continuing to foster my love of history and politics, while aiding the world at large through my leadership and my example.
Family and friends who know me believe that this is an accessible goal. After all, many of them have called me Mr. President since my elementary school years, a title I one day hope to achieve. But this dream possesses no chance of completion if I do not complete certain goals that will prepare me for my journey. I have already completed two of them: taking part extensively in Student Council at my high school in developing my leadership and communication skills, and being accepted to one of the premier universities that our nation has to offer. However, more lies ahead. I plan on majoring in Political Science or Economics. Afterwards, I wish to attend Law School, possibly concentrating on Constitutional Law. From there, the sky is the limit.
My dream job is being elected to the highest office in the land. However, all this work and the completion of my goals, does not culminate with an electoral victory, on any level. It culminates with the possibility of putting myself in a position to realistically help those from every corner of our community: local, national, and global.
