I love singing. When I was a little girl, I went around singing about whatever I saw fit. Singing for a living is a lifelong dream. My love for singing in particular wouldn’t change the world; however, the inevitable fame that hopefully would come with success is what I’d use to change the world. I want to change the way girls see themselves using myself as an example. When I was younger, bullies were relentless. I let them get to me and they made me believe I was worth less because of my looks. Today I am a stronger, heavier, proud Native American woman. I believe girls today feel more pressured than ever to become Barbie-doll perfect. I want to teach or show girls how to be confident in themselves; I want this confidence to stem from her kind acts towards other people and intelligence rather than her hair. I want them to be brave and confident with who they are and not with what they wear. I don’t plan on being famous anytime soon so my only plans to make this happen are to continue volunteering with younger kids like I have. In high school I volunteered many places, two of them being involved with younger kids. I volunteered with the local middle school youth group, and participated in big brother/big sister mentor program. I want to show these kids, especially girls, that beauty starts in the inside. A beautiful and strong heart makes an exceptionally gorgeous human being.
