Growing up in a world where there has become a way to experience everything easily through technology, and learn about many things, is very beneficial. I have always wanted to travel the world to experience many different cultures and try styles of food that I wouldn’t have here. I grew up in Southeast Asia and it has given me a different perspective on ways of life, different traditions and cultures. That has made me want to experience more than what the United States has to offer now. I’m not content to just live in one place for the rest of my life when I know the entire world is full of experiences outside of the bubble of your home or hometown.
The world has very unique qualities and I know that having a job that lets me save is something I want to do in the future. I’m still not exactly sure what job field I want to be in, except for the fact that I want to help make our planet the best it can be. Seeing the world, and trying to experience everything it has in it and appreciating the diversity means that I have high hopes for the future world.
My name is Aleiya Young, I live in Minnesota, and I am eleven years old. In the future I would like to become a novel writer. I could help change the world through the beauty of my words and I could inspire others to read and possibly write their own stories.
I would also like to become a singer. I want to be able to show my feelings through the art of music and song. I want to be a person who not only speaks my feelings in words or sings them in song, I want to SHOW them. I want to tell people they can be who they are and do what they want, how they want, just by using their voice. It can be a written voice, or a verbal voice, or a voice shown through art. I want to influence others so that they can find their own voice.
But for now, I will enjoy my life and await my future.
