About Me This is basically me: (Well, there's more but you'll just have to ask...but here's my basic beliefs)
I'M GOING TO CHANGE THE WORLD! No, but for real. I believe in a world where equality is the status quo. Where we don't have to think about what is right, rather it is innate. By nature we are equal and treat all individuals as such. That may be a dream, some will even say a dillusion, an impossibility. But I feel, rather I believe, that this is not only possible but inevitable. I believe in human rights and I believe in change. I believe in justice no matter how small and possibilities no matter how far out of reach. I believe that the smallest opportunity/decision/effort can make a difference and that we are all obligated to make that difference. This world is ours to cultivate, not to destroy.

Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
quote by Anatole France
What Gives Me Hope The moment when you first wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the twenty-four hours. No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that, during the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen. And the fact that it practically always doesn't, matters not a jot. The possibility is always there.
quote by Monica Baldwin
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Actually I do plan on running for President in 2024 if I have the backing and the experience.
And the first thing I would do would be to work with other nations (less developed and then developed countries) in order to improve the education systems both at home and abroad for all. Fore I believe that we are all in this world and all need to work to make it better, both domestically and internationally. And I believe that education is THE most important issues. With education we can get better jobs and make better livings with better healthcare options and better futures (ideally of course). But in the end, education will provide us with a means to a better future and of course it is up to us to take those opportunities to a better future.
What/who changed my life and why The World Affairs Seminar which was a seminar in Wisconsin for high school students was what changed my life. I was already interested in politics but to be blunt I was most interested in the little world that affected me. I was in a sense in a bubble. But the seminar helped me to truly see all the issues of the world outside of what gets talked about in my hometown and homestate. It allowed me to see that anyne can make a difference and that I would like to make a difference. It made me who I am today and who I will be in the future.
