How Can Writing Help Me Be The Change I Want To See In The World?
I've always been a worldly child. Even in my younger years I would notice plights that people in other parts of the World were suffering from. Other kids at my age cared little for worldly problems. Which led to me being somewhat of an outcast in social circles. Whenever we would have writing assignments, I would always write about wars, social disputes, and other issues(as much as an elementary school kid could know about such things). Some teachers would often tell me my work was years ahead of schedule. Others would demeen my writing, telling me it was to dark for a child. But I always had a point to get across with my papers, I've always wanted to change the world. Now that I'm in college, I'm hoping I can learn how to better get points across. I know that if I do become a lawyer like I want, I'm going to have to write lots of legal documents and such. And I will have to do a good job at getting points across. There's always been a love-hate relationship between me and writing. I always hated doing it in High School, mostly because of draconian topics assigned by teachers and there strict adherence to some format called MLA that I never fully grasped in my 4 years there. But on the off chance we got to choose our topics I ran with it. Mostly doing what I did in elementary school and writing on social issues and trying to express the way I want things to be. I loved writing when I could use it as an outlet in that way. Even though my teachers didn't always appreciate my opinions. I hope that I can become more fond of writing in college so that I can maybe change the world through writing.
