So one night when I was sitting my living room with my 4 year old nephew watching TV when a commercial came on about changing the world. My nephew said”no one can make a change in the world.” After hearing my nephew you say that I deiced that I was going to try change the world some how. i started to think of ways and things I could do to change the world we live in. That is why I deiced that I am going to become a teacher someday so I could help at least one child learn to read or write so they could be successful in their life. Then I made a promise to myself that I am going to try to do one nice thing for someone each day such as smiling at a stranger.

So in the end this I believe that you are the change you want the world to see.
