Bio

I am currently 19 years old and am a freshman in college. I'm on the prelaw track right now, planning to double major in psychology and political science. My long-term career goal is to complete law school and become a criminal justice lawyer. I have big goals for my life and my future. I want to make some sort of impact on the world within my lifetime. I feel as if I won't get to experience life properly if I'm not able to make a change in our society. Sometime in my life, I want to be able to run for some political position such as a mayor, governor, or even president. I want to make a positive change for Americans, especially those who aren't given an equal opportunity here. I want my ideas to be heard and I want our world to change and become better as a whole. Life has become a chore instead of an enjoyment. Instead of appreciating the little things, everyone is stuck on trying to become a billionaire. Our society keeps making it tougher for people with a normal income to live. Life is set up in a way where you pay for college to get a job just to use the money from the job to pay off your college debt. The system we currently live in is an endless cycle of hardship. The only way life can be worth living again is when someone is able to change the system we live in. In my life, I want to advocate for those who are not able to advocate for themselves. I want to make things different, whether I'm able to do that on a national scale or a local scale, I'm determined to make an impact on our world within my lifetime.
