When it comes to finding a career that’s right for you and good for the world, you have to know your strengths. A key to the success of our Echoing Green Fellows, for example, is their ability to uncover and focus on what they rock at. (They often fill in the holes in their expertise by supplementing them with talented people on their team.) It’s a simple formula for impact. With that in mind, we want to know, what are you good at?
I am good at impacting the lives of children and families, causing change to unhappy situations, or coming up with ways to help someone in need of assistance. I am a people person, I love putting a smile on people’s faces, however, my passion is to impact one’s life in a positive way to help individuals reach or set them up to reach their full potential. I came from an abused home and I am eager to help others that have been abused, need help to be placed in a loving home, or just help to get on one’s feet. My passion is the people but mainly children. I want to be a part of making a difference in a child’s life. I knew how important it was for someone to see past the smile I carried on my face, and to see the pain I had inside, not easy to do, but when you have lived the life, you can help others to make better choices than you may have, or create ways to give them purpose.
