I am where I am because of my hard work, perseverance and most importantly the generosity of people. People have played a key role in my success and for that reason the best gift to give them back is to put a smile on other people’s faces. I consider myself a success to this point but my success will only be full (successful) if I create a success in another person’s life. Though I cannot count on the instances I have helped people of my age or even older in one way of other, helping students with their college applications and mentoring has been so far. One of the student that I have helped with their applications is now studying in the US. Providing that opportunity for people to advance their goals is key to me.
I do not have to wait to finish my schooling and get a job for me to start helping people. While I am on the wait, I delay the other person’s time in achieving their dreams. I always yearn to help people in the areas that I can. For applications, I did not have anyone that helped me in editing my application essays or to closely guide through TOEFL examination revisions. Maybe if I did, the process could have been much easier. This is why I thrive to help students with their essay writing and also giving some insights into examination preparation techniques.
In the near future I look forward to being a mentor in the areas of career and development among the youth in my community. I hope to start a program that will offer education and career advice for the youths. As a student from Kenya, such resources are not available especially when you are from the rural areas.
