What do I want to do for the rest of my life?

When people ask me this question, a million things race across my mind. It is a very heavy loaded yet vague question at the same time. I know that I do not have it all figured out yet but I am sure that my purpose in life is to help people and make a difference in the world. Often, it is hard to answer such a vast question as what do I hope to do for the rest of my life because I want to do so many things, life is immeasurable. I aspire to achieve so much, a house, my own car, to get married and live happily ever after, to become the best version of myself physically and mentally, and to become a great cook. I hope to someday run a marathon, go skydiving, fall in love, be able to provide for my family, get my masters degree and start my own program for middle and high school students. I want to establish a program that will empower and motivate children to continue their education and pursue opportunities that will set them on the right path. I plan to empower students to support each other, teach kindness, and emphasize the importance of strengthening one’s character to be the best versions of themselves. I want to offer mechanisms, and resources for youth struggling with their mental health as well. The world needs more love and I intend to do everything in my power to make the world a better place for everyone to feel accepted, loved, and ensure them of equal rights and protection under the law.  Ideally I would like to fulfill a government position as either the mayor or governor of New York one day, and change legislation regarding the school systems, public housing, eliminate sanitation discrimination, and the systemic policies hindering minorities. Although these are big aspirations I know that I have the ability to achieve any and everything I put my mind to. One day I will be successful, and well established within my life, hopefully with some children and a dog or two. My main goal in life is to change the narrative of society, while liberating and unifying all marginalized groups of people.

    No aspirations are too big. I love your confidence in this. Because it's not a hope. It's definitely a will! You being part of CPL is a great step for you to enter your leadership as you already are one.
