When did you first realize you wanted to help the world?
Apr 12, 2012

My question is: when did you know that you wanted to help the world? I'd love to hear some of your stories! I knew that I wanted to help a few months ago, maybe last year. What about you guys?

I've alway wanted to help in some ways. This is what I was born to do and I think I've always known this was what was right for me, I just haven't felt it as strongly as I do now. Ps thanks for introducing me to TIG hmw102! stick

I first realized I wanted to help the world when I was in my senior year of high school. I was involved with different fundraising projects for cures for cancer and many other community projects. I love to help people and feel like I'm making a difference in the world. But I was trying to figure out what I could do to help people on a global scale. I was looking up majors and I found International Relations and National Security. With this major I will work for the government and help solve international problems. My ultimate goal is to help the world achieve peace so everyone can be safe and not live in fear of war and destruction.

I knew that I first wanted to help the world when I was offered volunteer service to a high school program called Shop with the Yellow Jackets. This program was attended to help elementary students during the winter time through shopping. I was a junior in high school at that time, and I felt like I made a real contribution knowing that these children would have any winter necessities. This event has provided me with insight on what I can do on a global scale. Contributions that are made by a volunteer aspect ends up assisting the world.

I realized it during my first visit to an orphanage when I was 18. The feeling was so moving. From there, I became a university peer counselor, a nurse and a mentor... helping others little by little...
