i want to make people happy through my writing.
I have always loved the feeling of being sucked into another world through reading, and I would love to give that feeling to others. I have been a writer for as long as I can remember. My dream is to make people happy, and even change someone's life, through my writing. I want people to be able to know that they are not alone.

To help students who struggle in math succeed.
I always struggled with math due to lack of care and attention from teachers in the classroom. They expected me to just get it. I finally succeeded at math when several teachers never gave up on me. They cared about me. I know I am not the only one who struggled, so I want to help other students succeed the way I finally did. It takes care.

My goal is to give voices to the unheard.
I want to show the "ordinary people" that do not think they make or can make a difference in the world that they can and it not all about the big things. That it does not matter where we come from because we all have the same goal.We can change the world. Let not give up on it to quick.

Which is the reason my major is radiation therapy, at st. Jude's I hope to spend time with the children to make a scary situation a little easier. Knowing I'm there for them.

I want to raise the standards of society.
My high school career has been about raising the bar for myself and everyone who follows me. In band, in baseball, and in academics, leadership is most effective when it is done by example. Because in life, there are no second chances; I prefer to do things to the best of my ability to the first time, and inspire others around me to do the same.

I want to show the world the beauty of living. :)
I want to help people, provide them with the medicine and therapy they need, and show them that a bad day or week does not mean a bad life. I want people to see the beauty in life, to cherish the small things, and not need material goods to be happy. I believe that there is good in everyone, and everyone should search to find the good in others.
