What am I, an entity, an individual, a soul, or all three? Where have I been lost in this large, ongoing world? I am one person, in millions of people that reside on this earth. I am one student striving to find herself and carve out a path in this never-stopping world, out of the millions of students trying to do the same. Not everyone will find success, because that is the way of the world. The world is not fair, and it never has been. There are many faces of ‘evil’ hiding in the world, in the form of hatred, poverty, ignorance, violence, etc., just waiting to find prey. It’s not easy for anyone to find success, but with a little courage, perseverance, and knowledge, anyone can, even me. I am, like many, not the first to seek success and definitely not the last, but I am a dreamer, a realistic dreamer, who believes in her dreams and carries the potential to fulfill them. I am a city girl through and through, but also am in tune with the rest of the world and where it stands. With some direct, but mostly indirect experiences, I have slowly become aware of the cruelty of hatred, the ruthlessness of poverty, and the danger of ignorance. Being the dreamer that I am, I envision a world with widespread love and peace. Of course, the ‘evil’ will never stop; it can only be overpowered with love and forced to a minimum. I hope to advance myself in college, gaining lots of knowledge, better social skills, and a better sense of the world around me, in order to prepare to enter the real world, stand independently, and take some action. I hope to study abroad and travel the entire world one day in order to gain a better sense of and explore the many rich cultures that the world has to offer.
