I am twenty years old. A student. Born in Oakland, California and now studying at the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon. Time is forcing me to grow up faster than I'd like and I'm not a teenager anymore. With grown-up age comes grown-up responsibilities and now is the time for me to develop my plan for the future. Now is the time to pursue my dreams.
Tonight I realized something: I've spent the better part of my life wishing for something that I don't really want. The career I alway thought I'd pursue, the fame that would come with it, those things aren't in my heart. At least, not anymore. I want to do something that means something to me. Something that I am so passionate about that it will bring tears to my eyes just thinking about it. I want to inspire people. To let them know they matter and their dreams matter. I want to inspire a revolution of kindness that is genuine and whole hearted because I believe that kindness is the most beautiful thing to ever touch our hearts. And laughter helps too.
