The Next Chapter
Having an opportunity to do something bigger than yourself is a life-changing opportunity that each and every one of us should have. Personally, I’ve just started a new chapter of my life that’s leading me on a road with endless possibilities. Believe me, once you’ve started helping to change the world, you’re never going to want to stop, and that drive and determination is a feeling that we should all feel, every day of our lives. Walking around your school knowing that what you’re doing is helping to lead an organization that is going to change the world is incredible, and I would never hesitate to be a part of something like this.
No matter your age, I encourage you to start taking action and making this world a better place, because no matter how small you may be, there is always a way you can help. The Grade 3s at our school raised $515.00 to help support our cause just from a bake sale, because they wanted to be a part of something bigger than themselves. They got themselves involved in a project that could be life changing, and I encourage each and every one of you to do the same. No matter how small the action, an action is an action that can lead to other bigger actions, and contribute to one overall goal. Once you take that action, you’ll have the best feeling in the world, and it doesn’t take much at all.
I’m only 14 years old, but no matter your age, getting involved in a project like this is something I highly recommend, and I don’t regret a single thing. I am calling for everybody reading this to take an action, whether it’s a bake sale, an act of service, or a week of fundraising. I guarantee you, you won’t regret it. Every little thing counts. You are the future of this project because if everyone does one action, the world becomes a better place. My future will be full of actions, and I encourage yours to be the same. Ask yourself: what’s my future?
The 2018-19 GSL Global Goals Competition is now open and runs until June 2019.
