Most people would agree that I’ve lived a pretty normal life. I don’t think I’ve ever really been selfish or greedy, at least not to an extreme.Before last summer I would of considered myself a normal Christian girl. Before last summer I never really took my surroundings to account. It wasn’t that I didn’t care, I just didn’t pay attention. I didn’t realize what I was doing was one of the most unchristian things you can do; not loving your neighbor. Not caring if the person in the house next door is being loved, if they have felt the love and mercy of Christ. After I started volunteering at the Boys & Girls I realized how crucial love and kindness is in someone’s life. That’s why I want to do what I want to do, which is study law. I want to help people maybe not in the typical way but nonetheless I want to help. That is why those six words have become my new mantra. It stopped being all about me.
