As a young child, I wanted to help the less fortunate who have been unjustly oppressed throughout their lives. During my 12th birthday, I received a heavy sum of money; instead of spending it on things that weren’t necessary, I decided to donate it to several charity organizations. When I began high school, I was exposed to the issue of animal exploitation for goods and valuables. It gave me a broader perspective of the relationship between humans, animals, and nature itself. By learning the amount of oppression society faces, I wanted to increase my role to end these problems. I hope that my contribution will decrease, to some measure, the conflict in the world. I want to expand my role to encourage individuals from my community to take action to prevent this matter from continuing in the world.
