Words. They can change the world. I want to change the world; I want the gift of speech to inspire a change in thoughts and actions, my own as well as others. To write the book that sits upon every bookshelf, copies in every bag, cover faded with usage, bindings loosened, and pages worn thin. To inspire peace, and equality, to spend my life repeating these words to others while inspiring them to dream of a better life for themselves and their children.

Inspiration, sometimes that’s all someone needs to act upon their dreams and change their life. Can I change the world with words? Yes I can, and someday, I will. I have taken the initial steps to obtain my goal. I will graduate college with a Bachelor’s degree in English, I will complete the manuscript I have started to write. I will finish my goals that launch my dreams afloat. I will write, I will speak, I will inspire.

Words. They are powerful, they are unique, and they are mine to give. Give them I shall, as a writer, an educator, an inspiration to others.
