I have a Dream
At the age of seven I dreamt of becoming the youngest female African American volleyball player. At the age of twelve I dreamt of becoming a doctor. At the age of eighteen I stopped dreaming. What exactly is dreaming? According to Webster’s Dictionary, Dreaming is a series of thoughts, images, or emotions occurring during sleep. I’ve always dreamed of being successful even if I didn’t know the proper steps to fulfilling my dreams. Today as a young woman I dream about being the next Michelle Obama or Hilary Clinton. My dream is to help organize and build relationships between low income urban communities and state representatives by providing communities with information to public policies, community organizing, planning local and state wide events to help raise money for low income urban communities throughout the state.
Urban communities state wide has been known for two thing; lack of development, and failing school systems. My goal is to build relationships between community leaders and state representatives to coalesce people from both ends of the spectrum; by doing this we are holding people accountable for their actions. I will help provide information to community leaders to inform them of the upcoming bills and policies that will affect their areas of the state. Schools throughout the Mississippi Delta lack qualified school teachers, along with a lack of school supplies. Also, students in the Delta often feel forgotten or overlooked. Many students attend school today with a lack of school supplies or updated books. My job in the future is to help provide students with all the necessary materials they need to be more efficient.
Urban developments throughout the state of Mississippi have troubles with bringing people together. My main goal is to help organize communities by building grassroots systems and providing programs for young adults to stay active as well as empower them to avoid being a product of their environment....
