If I could do what I love to change the world it would be solving its problems. There is nothing like the feeling I have after the completion of an idea to solve a problem because it actually work. Be it for a school project, a dispute, world problems, or random things, I love thinking about how to solve this problem that has a new set of parameters. I remember in geography class my teacher mentioned how in Mexico there were these slum cities outside of major cities because so many people were trying to earn a better living at the same time. There was no clean, running water, no sanitation, lean-to’s packed together, garbage everywhere and with that I missed half the lesson that day because my teacher had presented me with a problem that I had to come up with at least basic solutions for. To improve the situation the most should they recycle the garbage first or provide fresh water? Build bathrooms or multiple story apartments first? And while these ideas were going through my head I had felt like I could change the world. I had felt that power, that ambition to do so in those moments of thought. So in thinking about this, maybe my love is not necessarily problem solving. Maybe my love, my love that will change the world, is actually changing the world. And I can do it with these ideas of mine.
