Seeing a smile light up someone’s face is what I love the most. I enjoy helping people with small and large tasks, because the feeling of accomplishment that follows is the best feeling there is. If I could make a living doing what I love the most, I would travel the world helping hundreds of people along the way to improve their lives. By supporting people to rebuild their homes, or to learn how to read, or teach them to stay well, they could improve their quality of life. On a large scale, this improvement would lead to more intellectual innovations, economic involvement, and a better off society as a whole. If my job were to help others, I would see my work as a stone in water. Although small, and seemingly unimportant, when it is dropped in the water it creates a ripple that touches the ripples of other stones and makes the water ever moving and changing, instead of keeping it stagnant.
