I am a high school student with huge dreams. I consider myself an intellectual and a deep thinker who wants to not only make the world better but also to give others the ability and encouragement to do the same. I'm an optimist who knows that no matter where I end up I can be happy and successful doing whatever I'm meant to do.

When I look at my high school surroundings, I know I'm seeing something different from what others see. Some people see a bunch of relatively shady young people who are lazy, indifferent and disrespectful. I on the other hand see the potential of thousands of young people without a cause. None of them have ever been exposed to something that they truly care about and won't be until they are well into adulthood. The ability to cultivate a passion from a very young age should be the privilege of all high school students. Unfortunately, those who stand for something are often looked down on as uppity freaks who think they can do more than is possible. My idea worth sharing is an online outlet where judgements are left at the door and a generation of young people isn't wasted. We see the world for what it is and we know how to make it better. If we had the benefit of a place to come together and share our ideas, there's no limit to what we could accomplish. Teens 4 Change: a forum for good
