to show that the underprivileged can succeed
I was born into poverty not by choice of my own nor my parents. At the age of 15 I found myself in a foster home in Ontario, CA. I remained in foster care until the age of 19 when i moved to Chattanooga, TN. I moved here to go to college and receive my degree and break the chain of poverty in my family. I want to succeed and not be the statistic.

I want to do my part for our wildlife
I want to rehab injured wild animals. These animals get hurt in various ways and it is up to us to protect them. I want to help them get healthy so they can be released into the wild once again. Supporting endangered animal populations is important to me and this is how I want to help.

I want to prevent preventable diseases and deaths.
My family is originally from Sudan and when I visit my home country, I see an appalling amount of litter and garbage everywhere. This is due to a very poor waste management and sanitation system, which leads to flies and mosquitoes that bring diseases. People catch these diseases and get very sick, and for what? A bad system. I want to change that.

I want to educate others on mental health
In high school, I was suffering from depression, anorexia, and bulimia.I knew I had a problem yet I was too scared to seek for help because I fear people will accuse me of making it all up. I want to prevent people from feeling the isolation and helplessness I had felt by showing them that it is okay to have those feelings and to seek help.

I want to help those who suffer.
I have the desire and passion to serve others. As an imperfect follower of the perfect Jesus Christ, I know that out lives are meant for service to others. This world bleeds of suffering, yet I believe that we must be there for each other during times of calamity and of joy. Even if it means sacrificing things for others, I would be glad to do so.

I want to work until my idols become my rivals.
My family isn't necessarily in the best shape, and I have taken it upon myself to help support them. I am always striving to do my best and keep everyone in high spirits, even though we all have our off-days. I want to be able to look back in 20 years and only regret the decisions that didn't make memories.

i will create my own tv show and comic book!
Drawing is what gives me life. Pictures express more words than a book or article ever could. I want to have an animated show that speaks to the older kids instead of being aimed at 8-13 age group. I want a comic book that teaches people different things and allows them to think of their future in a positive light instead of a stressful one!
