I seek every opportunity that I can to learn, and grow so that I am able to pass my knowledge on to our younger generations. I hope and pray each day that the world will unite, and world peace will be achieved. I am actively involved in the community. I volunteer, mentor, and involve myself in any and every opportunity that arises that will benefit all of humanity, and our communities. I believe that as one person reaches out to another, it is possible to set off a chain of events, where people will help one another. I hope that as a person sees a person helping another, it will encourage them to do the same, while embracing diversity, rather than judging one another. As people are subject to different types of people, hopefully they will take the time to better understand the person and their situation. I am a passionate person, and I always stand up for people who are mistreated, or going through difficulties in their lives. I know that for us to create world peace, every individual must first find an inner peace within themselves, to accept who they are, where they came from, and traumas they may have experienced, to be able to grow and live with a positive outlook toward the future. I believe that with the help and concern of others, just by showing them that someone cares and believes in them, it will give people the hope and motivation they need for them to overcome their self defeating thoughts and behaviors. With love and acceptance in our hearts, one by one, we can lift each other up, and embrace uniqueness and individuality. No matter our race, religion, beliefs, thoughts, morals, or values, if we all act with kindness and love in our hearts for others, while trying to understand one another rather than judge, the universe will conquer any obstacles in its path, including diversity, poverty, hunger, and hate. People, organizations, governments, states, and countries can link together to form a bond where they realize that each group needs to work together and support one another in order for our country to strive.
For a person to be successful, they must be educated, but I also believe that real world experience is an even greater teacher. For one to truly understand others, they must live in the other persons shoes. With every job, and every experience, there is valuable knowledge to be gained. This is the reason why I have never felt that any job was too big or small, too much of a waste of time, too dirty or degrading, too belittling or above me, or too insignificant because I am able to grow and better understand all the types of people and situations around me. I enjoy having the opportunity to see things through others eyes, or walk in their shoes because it no only gives me the opportunity to better understand them, but also help me value the things and people in my life. With each class that I attend at WVUP, I am able to better understand myself, people in general, the youth that I counsel on a daily basis, and the environments in which we live in. Through various Psychological courses, and Sociological courses, I am able to learn what it takes to help both people, and our communities. I hope to attend The Washington Center, in Washington D.C., next year, which specializes in the types of programs that I wish to get involved in such as Non-profit sectors, Civic engagement, Civil Service, Advocacy, and Leadership to help me further my knowledge on the subjects so that I am able to make a real difference in this world.
I hope to someday become an United Nations Ambassador, and own my own non-profit organization that has one mission, and that is to fundraise and find funding for other non profits that strive to benefit all of humanity. I hope to see an end to poverty, hunger, homelessness, prisoner recidivism, substance abuse, and self defeating habits of todayâ€™s youth and victims of crime. I will dedicate any and all spare time to helping others, through mentoring, speeches, educating, relating, volunteering, reaching out, and mediating any problems between people or groups. I will make it so that people are not just a number, statistic, victim, patient, delinquent, or criminal. I will give their names a face, and a voice, and link them to services to help them to achieve an inner peace and the encouragement they need for them to become successful individuals. Linked through love, compassion, and understanding, the world will rise above, and all will reach their full potential, not by themselves but with the support of the world behind them.
Making a difference in this world, by bringing people and communities together to spread love and good deeds across the globe! I aspire to start my own company "people pay it forward fundraising"
I believe the media is ridden with negative things on tv, and in our papers. Shows like Secret Millionaire, and Extreme Makeover Home edition not only fill be with a great wrath of warmth and joy, but also inspire me to really want to make a positive impact on the world. The inspiration, that came for me..as well as i am sure many of you, is unreal, and has had such an impact on me that it proves the positiveness that good deeds in the media could have on people. I want people to come together, work together, and lend a hand to let the love of kindness spread. I have many creative ideas on a reality show, that would accomplish this goal. I am not concerned with money or power, but rather...helping those in need. This show would accomplish many things, all in one, such as bringing people together, showing the love that can come from helping others, donating time to charities, using all proceeds for benefit of the charities, show the power in working together, and embrace diversity!
Love, life, peace, making the world better, social/civic issues, the beauty of nature, today's youth, spirituality, philosophy, philanthropy, justice, ideas, and psychology (esp humanism)
Getting along with pretty much anyone and everyone. I am a social butterfly, and i love meeting people who are positive and kind to create the ulitmate union!
LINK: I love the word â€œlinkâ€. I think that everything in this world is linked. The mind is linked to the body, and its behaviors. The body is linked to nature and its surroundings, and to complete the circle, our surroundings are linked to our thoughts. As one becomes linked to the spirit within them, they are able to connect with the thoughts, and beliefs within them, and through self actualization, they are able to recognize and acknowledge their strengths, talents, or even their weaknesses. As their minds expand, they not only accept but also begin to understand reasoning behind their own thinking patterns, and others actions. Through this process, they are opening up to diversity, thoughts/values/and morals different from their own, it now inspires them to want to know more, rather than judging. Once a person is linked with their inner selves, they then link themselves to others and the world around them which will result in a productive/supportive community arising!
