I’d love to become a lawyer and make actual change in the country. Whether that would support me going into politics, or practice law to help the environment by being an activist on the side.

As a student I am imaginative and intellectually self confident. Some of the things I can do is sketch, solve math problems, and understand scientific theories. I always want to be challenged because even though someone maybe be athletically better, smarter, or even popular than me, I want to show them that I am not the boring person they think I am and that everyone is special in some type of way. One of my hobbies would be travelling and visiting new areas because after seeing New York there is no way I would want to stop seeing new places, there's a whole world waiting for me!

my changemaker statement is to tell everyone to actually do something. every environmental problem and every issue in the world has already been listed and people have already found solutions. so instead of just discussing what solutions to take why don't we go out and actually do something. there are people in the world who are actually working to save the environment and i admire that but these days the whole discussion about trying to save the planet and healthier living is just for show. they just use that to sell their products because they know what we want to see. so my statement is to go out into the world find a problem and instead of having a debate team debate it. have the debate team go out and fix it.

I think of the world as a friendly, yet dangerous place. Depending on your effort and your set of skills and interests changes that person's future. A person's future depends on how that person responds to certain things and how it effects them. I like to think of myself as more of a strategic person. I'm not a risk taker. I just think that everyone should analyze before they tale a huge risk or leap. I'm also prefer to work independently. A goal that is achievable alone just makes more sense to do alone. If i were trying to go for a goal that helps the world become a better place, i think that i would try for editing the way we use electricity. Humans tend to use electricity like it's water. I think that the way we use power could definitely be better. My goal would be to improve the use of power so that we could reduce the strain of it that it causes the earth.

The main problems that the people of the Earth go through are world hunger and different medical issues. The Earth itself goes through climate change and pollution. I want to change all of that by using my biggest interest, video games, to help me. I want to be a gaming YouTuber with a message: keep the world and its inhabitants happy. When I get a little more well known, I will do donation live streams multiple times a year, all going towards different types of things: various medical treatments, world hunger, pollution prevention, and climate change prevention. Remember this: the Earth is our home, given to us by God, and we need to take care of it because it is ours.

I hope I can use my knowledge to change the world, which is make it become a better place.

I have always enjoyed computer and hope to learn more about them. They are used in our everyday lives such a phones, cars and much more. They are always being improved to help other people. With the further development of technology we will be able to uncover more possibilities such as flying to the mars or to other planets. I use computers almost every day and I want to be able to be apart of it.

I am creative, kind, outgoing, and helpful. I enjoy doing many things such as dancing, singing, writing stories, travelling, caring for children, and making new friends. I have always felt a connection towards people and I feel happy when I know that I have helped them in someway. Helping people is just one thing that majorly contributes to my future career. My goal is to become a pediatrician that does not only attend to children when they are sick, but is also a friend to them. Children are the future of our world and I feel that pediatricians have a duty to not only make sure that children are healthy and well, but to also make sure that they are enjoying life and being kids. Many natural disasters around the world take a toll on people's environment as well as their health and lives and I know, even as a freshman in high school, there is work to be done to help those around us. I want to apply my love for helping others and children to make the environment a safer, healthier, and happier place.

The world that we live on is currently in danger, with pollution everywhere. I want to use my skills to help reduce waste and pollution. I am currently interested in computers, and some hobbies I enjoy doing is hanging out with my friends, going to sporting events, and helping out in my community. My goal is to reduce waste on the earth. I want to find a career that helps reduce waste.
I am helpful, smart, and inquisitive. My favorite things to do are playing basketball and cooking. I want to have the opportunity to help kids out while at the same time teach them lessons that will lead them to successful lives. My greatest goal is that eventually I will run a school and provide great accessible education for any kid who shows they want and deserve it. I believe that the key to changing the environment begins with the children and the education they receive. Without a good education as we grow up we grow ignorant of what is going on in the environment. for that reason, I would like to own a school of my own and have the ability to make sure that students are aware of the Environmental and Economical issues that occur in our world.
