The Dreams and Visions I Pursuit

I want to be the Planeteer. I want to be one of them, who with the power of their rings summon captain planet to dispel the evils from earth. Just like the Planeteers I want my voice to be heard. I want to join them in healing the world from tiredness and illness the world constantly faces.
One of my first visions is to see the world filled with thinkers whom I place on the highest level as I believe that they are ones who being the broad-minded embrace the new ideas and thoughts. They possess the power to discern between right and wrong which allows them to challenge the wrongs accepting the rights. These people dare to speak, speak for change, for people, and for truth. I salute them and would like to see the world triumphing with thinkers who understand and care. It is the light of education that would definitely help grow these thinkers.
Secondly, empowered women marching the whole world, is another vision that I cherish. These women are them, who believe and respect themselves. Women should be supportive to themselves, to each other to establish their rights and positions in the society. They should not be timid by the threatened voices that bark all around. They should not confine themselves to the unjust ideas and customs that are made by the brutal, superstitious and uneducated part of the society. In bringing changes women have to co-operate each other. When there’s unity there will be strength and none could dare to impose injustice and discrimination against this huge allied troop who are concerned and aroused. Starting from the house with mother and daughter, this support should be practiced everywhere among all the women around the world.
Thirdly, corruption free education is one of the dreams that I always pursuit. Today in many places education system seems to face the brutal consequence of corruption where the sole purposes of education are lost by the indifference attitude of the teachers and the students. Without proper guidance these students lose their identity by indulging themselves to unwanted and unexpected doings. Therefore, I no more want to see teachers or students lacking enthusiasm, dedication in achieving one of the highest priorities of life.
And finally, as an environmental science student the one thing that concerns me the most about the environment and the world is the reckless use of limited natural resources. Therefore I aim to join campaigns in stopping ourselves from the reckless use of power and natural resources. We should use resources without wasting them and go green that promises clean environment and less pressure on the natural resources we possess.
The reason that inspired me to apply for the voice of future is that, I find this a wonderful opportunity to amplify my voices to the world having proper guidance and training. I want to interact with all the planeteers from different parts of the world. I want to join them on their campaigns and would also like to have them in mine. Summoning all the planeteers implies the amplification of one single voice that is powerful and would help open the possibilities for changes. The visions I pursuit today would not find real platforms if I do not approach towards them. My sister once told me no one would pay any heed to what I have to say if I do not prove myself competent. Hence it is high time that I should start searching my guides today. Therefore yes, it is the world pulse and the voice of future which not only helped me in joining the community of powerful minds but would also help me in spreading my voices allowing me to have training and guidance. Finally, if I am able to make it through to the voice of future I would not let it go vain instead I would take one step forward in introducing my visions and ideas to the millions who would support, give me feedback, share their experiences and help me approach the barriers and challenges.
