The idea that little me could inspire or help even one person blows my mind. The idea that I can have such a large effect on someone enough to empower them, motivate them and guide them sounds like the best job in the world. I want that job. I really do. I want to help people and influence them. I want to be someone people can confide in, turn to and seek comfort from. I may not be a celebrity, I may not have a large social following (yet) but I have been through things, I have had my fair share of struggles and I have learnt from them. I want to be able to help people the way I wasn’t helped. Say to someone what I once wished someone would say to me.
I want to raise awareness on so many topics that I hold dear to me, the main one being Mental Health. I know too many people who have suffered, I myself am one who continues to battle with my mind but that’s why I need to be able to help people get through that.
Because I know how it feels.
Ever since I was a young girl I have changed my mind on what I wanted to be when I grew up multiple times. My dream job went from being a doctor to an interior designer. I wanted to become a fashion designer but then decided that being on the news sounded a lot better. Throughout these “dreams” only one part stayed the same. There was only one thing I told myself that never changed. That was that whatever I wanted to do in the future it had to involve helping people. No matter what I want to help people.
I recognised from a young age that I was blessed with a life people out there dream about. I have a roof over my head, food on my plate, a family at my side and friends all around. I have had a wonderful and fulfilling education and I have a lot of opportunities around me. I have the power and the ability to help others. I have fought through battles of my own time and time again and I can teach on my experiences.
One day I want to be recognised as someone who has made a positive change, a positive impact on the world or the environment around me. I want to use this life I have been given and make the most out of it. I don’t want to live with the regret that I could’ve done more than I did.
Helping people is the dream, it is why I write. Words are so powerful that I wanted to use them to inspire people. I want people to read what I write and hear what I have to say and feel something from that.
I know I have the power in me to be a voice for those without a voice. I have the power to create a life I can look back on and be proud of. That is why I want to become an influencer. That is why I want to write.
