What profession or career do you want to pursue? Why?

When I'm older I hope to become a teacher. Throughout my 12 years of schooling, I have looked up to and relied on my teachers to help and support me through my educational career. I have been through a lot of hard times in my life and I have always had a teacher or mentor at school to look to. I want to one day be that mentor to a student to help guide them through their life and on to becoming a great and functional human in society. Teachers pave the way of the future, and I want to help teach students how to live a life that is useful in our world, while educating them on how to be strong people and future leaders.

What do you hope to accomplish in life?

There are many things I hope to accomplish in my life - graduate college, have a loving family, travel the world and, most importantly, make a difference. Yes, I know, many people in this world hope to make a difference, but I believe that through teaching I truly can make an impact on this world. I want to teach the future generations how to correctly and respectfully run the world and be good people.

If I could do anything, it would be to ...

Travel the world. I want to see what life is like in other places other than here in Parker, Colorado. This planet has so much to offer and it would be a shame to spend a life not seeing as much of it as possible.
