I dislike writing a bio or cv as it reminds me of how little I contributed to the world. I never excelled at school for the simple reason that it bored me to no ends. The classes I was good at where to easy and the ones that where hard simply didn't interest me enough to be worth my time. But instead that they allowed me to go on above the grades average in the subjects I was good in and enjoyed they told me to actually stop so that I would not get too far head of the rest of the class. I think I was 13 or 14 at the time and even though I was unaware this was not just my problem but something the entire world suffers from I slowed down and just did enough to pass. I think this is where my interest in education and how to improve it but also sociology and how we define ourselves, others and the masses and what we could do in order to change the world for the better. But, sadly, you need to excel in every subject in order to get in a university and at the time I simply didn't have it in me to study something that I found irrelevant and boring to what I wanted to achieve. It's remarkable that the choices you make when your 14 set you up for life and even if people see you can do more they rarely care or they tell you but don't have the resources to actually do something about it. I would love to spend the upcoming years learning more about social aspects of our society and help to improve it. Yet I'm stuck and forced to doing do - in my opinion - trivial and useless jobs of which most can be replaced by machines just so I can pay my bills. The really sad thing is that I'm not the only one and I believe that everyone should have the chance to do what they enjoy en excel at.
Making life better for everyone.
I believe that in order to give our children an good feature we have to make our changes now. It really pains me to see how little we really accomplished as the human race. Our economy is a mess that can only survive with infinite growth, our education focuses on the average student this while every person is different and should be treated as such. I may only be 28 now and I have no children of my own but still I don't want to pass this mess on to the next generation. I have the utmost respect for all the people around the world trying to make it a better place but in my opinion the only way to make a long and lasting difference is by guiding the public in the only way we know works. This is sadly without them knowing them, for this reason I would love to indulge myself in sociology and find ways to guide the masses towards a better life for everyone. The only thing left for me is to find a way to make that possible.
