I’m a practical person and anything worth doing is to do something that will last. I don’t hold value in material things of this world, the well-being of the people around me is what I care about the most. If I could earn a living doing what I love, it would look like me helping people, for free, with whatever they need. That’s what a true leader looks like: a servant. Sometimes life can be hard and that helping hand from someone who doesn’t owe you anything is what is remembered. The bible teaches us to lower ourselves and serve others, to love even the unlovable, and to look past the surface of a person and see what they are really struggling with. I’m getting my degree in social work. I imagine having a job showing kids who grew up not having been shown love that life doesn’t have to be the way they were raised. It doesn’t have to be scary, or lonely. I would teach them that life changes from moment to moment and it only takes a decision followed by action to turn everything around. And that anything worth doing is not the easy road, but it’s the road that produces lasting results. I can’t promise this plan would change the world, but it will change someone’s world.
