This is my first blog post, and I don’t know 100% what to expect. All I do know, is that I have a clear goal in my head. I have a passion; something I think about all day, because I desperately want it to come true.
My goal is this: During my high school career, I want to create some sustainable source of income for a K-8th grade school in Haiti, and then, figure out how to impact others by building a company. This idea of 3 generations, is my hope to unite people from all generations to help and make a stand. If you are a kid, helping your community and others is incredibly important. It sets you out to think about others, rather than yourself. I was always the type of kid who did that. Usually, I did that too much, and ended up not taking very good care of myself. However, I feel blessed to have learned the important lesson that comes with helping people. My parents were the ones who started me on that track, and I want others to do this too. It’s never too late to make an impact! Even older generations can do many things. It is important to not dis-acknowledge them, just because they are older. In reality, it is the mindset that people place upon them that makes them believe that their work is done.
Through this blog, I hope that others with similar goals and ideas can join me in impacting the world. My father has always told me to “impact a billion people, for big goals can be achieved with time and hard work”. Be the type of person who dreams so big, that others may laugh at your dream. This will push you to achieve new things.
