As a young adult in my community I feel like I have to be the change I want to see. Not only in my community but also throughout our city, nation, and world. With my education at Morehouse College I plan to give back to society in a way that many people haven’t yet. I plan to invest in many of our youth’s future. Our youth today are constantly facing challenges, in particularly pure pressure, the thing that will make any child do something unethical just to fit in.
After college I plan on opening my own daycare/afterschool for particularly kids who are in low-income families but opened to anyone. I have always knew my calling was to help youth. I just don’t want to stop at the younger kids but also influence some of the older teens. How will I do this; by opening my own mentorship program.
My goal for this Daycare/ Afterschool program and Mentorship program is to get children and teenagers to understand that they can make it through life, and their situation doesn’t determine their destiny. There are so many youth in charlotte today that all they need and want is some love, attention, and someone to look up to. I want to use my gift and give it towards others; this is why obtaining an education can further my goal to open up this Daycare/Afterschool and Mentorship program for the teenagers and children.
