Joseph

Our world today is facing a global crisis. Kids throughout the world are suffering physically from no shelter to starvation. Teens throughout the world are suffering emotionally from depression, loneliness, and stress.
This has become a worldwide epidemic of kids and teens having to deal with all sorts of problems that are more apparent now then ever before. To make a change in the world, I want to help kids deal with these problems. In order to do this, I need to be understanding of whatever situation anyone might be going through while also learning to be patient at all times. I want to cooperate with other people to help me in helping kids and teens but also be independent in the choices I believe are right. It is important for me to be observant of what is going on around me in order to help other kids deal with their problems.

Ella

Valencia High School

Due to the fact that I am deeply empathetic and understanding to people's pain and struggles, I would like to pursue a career in clinical and/or addiction therapy and psychology. All I want out of a career is to be able to make someone's life better and more stable. There are so may individuals out in the world that need help and aren't getting any, and I would like to be someone who could give them what they need in order to live their lives to the fullest extent. If the world had more stable people in it, there is no telling what could be accomplished, and for that reason I think it is not only fulfilling to be a professional counselor, but it is necessary to the future that there are more outlets for finding help.

Naomi :((

Valencia Highschool

The changes I want to see in the world are improvements to climate change, waste, and clean water. The changes i will do in order to help benefit the earth is recycle , reduce, reuse, and most importantly refuse. I will recycle plastic bottles and cardboard boxes that not only I use but also the ones my family uses. I will also refuse to use plastic bags in the supermarket and invest in reusable bags. Also what ever my family uses i will also try to reuse or make something new so I can reduce waste. All of this is important to me because I want this world to be the healthiest it can be for me and future generations.

Claudia

Valencia High School

Some of my many strengths are being an artistic and empathetic person when it comes to anything that has to do from my school to my personal life. I would like to implement the skills I have to do something useful for the world. I can encourage younger people to enhance their inner creativity, since studies have shown that the percentage of self-creativity and ability to problem solve have slowly decreased through time. I am a big believer in a photography, being able to capture a moment in time is one of the greatest things that someone could ever do even if it is a common experience now-a-days. Photography is something that can be kept forever and it gives you the opportunity to see how time has developed through one's lifetime. Traveling is another experience that in my opinion is a great way to feel as if you are actually able to meet the world face to face. Writing gives me the chance to express my emotions to the deepest point my persona can meet. My personal favorite would have to be art, art is photography, writing and traveling all in one. You are able to visualize anything you desire, express any emotions you feel and exhibit it to the world without any hesitation.
