Erase the stigma behind mental illness
I have struggled with mental illness myself and have always wrongfully felt ashamed to admit it. I want to help children that are affected with this negative stigma feel like there is nothing wrong with them and that psychiatrist appointments are just as important as physician appointments. Mental illness is real, and you are not wrong to admit it.

To Work at St.Judes Children's Hospital
I am studying nursing to hopefully become a nurse at St. Jude's Children's Hospital. It would mean a lot to me if I could help these children and their families through upsetting times, but also help to treat them to heal.

I want to give back to my community
I grew up on the less fortunate side of Kansas City and I understand how people here don't have all that they need for healthcare. I will become a dentist and give back to those in my community because everyone deserves an equal opportunity for living a healthy life. Also, I want to make my family proud.

Protect Endangered Wildlife
I am studying Animal Science, hoping to attend Vet School, so that I can improve and limit human effects on the environment. The main reasons certain species are going extinct is because they are losing their habitat or as a result of poaching. I am hoping that through capture and release medical methods, I can limit our damaging effect on animals.

I want to teach kids the POWER to create music
What drives me to achieve my goal is the amount of people in my life that have walked away from music and I want to have kids that won't walk away despite the difficulties in life, they can use it to inspire and to create hope for themselves and others around them.

to appreciate myself
In the last couple years I've experienced things that I never thought I could overcome. From fighting and struggling everyday to make a great life for myself, I never thought I could ever be happy with myself. This is the one goal that I have always set for myself. I hope this is an opportunity that will assist me in achieving this.

My goal is to help and impact the life of people.
I've always wanted to be able to help people in any way that I could, whether it be by making them smile when they are down or making a major impact on their life.
