Josselyn: "I Want to Help Create the Future"

“I want to become a teacher. Growing up with two little sisters helped me discover my love for watching children grow into what they want to become, and I want to be in a position where I can help create the future and nurture it even when I’m not there.

We are all destined to get something out of life. As a teacher, I may not be able to live luxuriously, but I want to create something that will grow larger and stay around longer than me. I want to know that I did all I could for my future family and for the future alone.

Helping kids understand things and helping them care for each other would be a great accomplishment for me. I want to know I left the future in hands that are able to keep their own legacy alive.

That's why I want to be a teacher.”
