There is one thing l love more than anything in this world. This thing you might ask is working with younger children who haven’t had the best of opportunities in their lifetime. These children could be anything in the world and because of the situation they’re in where they come from lower income homes, or from families with parents in and out of prison the child wouldn’t know what they are capable of. I wish I could be paid to teach these kids about the potential they have to make an impact on the world like I’m attempting to do with their young brilliant minds. No limitation should be put on the imagination of a kid, especially because they aren’t as privileged as another child. I come from one of these homes where as a child you were told that you mind as well put your dreams on a full time manual labor job where you work your butt off for a dime. I responded to this by saying I am going to be different and I’m going to go to college and earn a degree. I will make this possible for kids who come from the same style of home, so hopefully one day they will make an impact on the next generation. Who knows we could have a U.S. President in a class of kids who can barely afford to pay for a school lunch. This is my dream to teach these kids what they are capable of.
