    I want to go into the US Marine Corps

    and make a difference by serving my country as long as I am able. I want to fly, and hopefully I'll be able to fly combat search and rescue ops. I know there isn't as much of a stigma about women pilots anymore, but I want to be another name in the list of people who have helped...

    I'm working towards changing the drug laws in

    the UK. I've never been a hard drug user but sending users to prison before they've committed any "real" crimes is just creating criminals, they learn how to commit crime properly in prison instead of being educated about drugs and helped to deal with the issues that lead them...

    Our society has a lot of names

    and definitions. Some like it, others hate it with a passion and would rather be dissociated from it, but only few would dare to disagree with the fact that if not for it, we would never have achieved the things we have. It doesn’t, however, mean that it is perfect and...

    I think it's just disgusting what the western

    that a 14 year old can actually do to change things. I have had this ambition to make a difference and to help people for a while and that's why I decided that I want to be a donor of various things (e.g. Blood and marrow). When I realised that I can't do this because, at the...

    my girl scout troop is making reusable,

    rewashable pads for these girls in two different schools in Kenya because once they get to that time in life they don't have what they need and end up dropping out and being married early. this makes me feel like I'm not pointless in this world.

    The only way most of us can make a difference

    is to start with ourselves. Change comes from within, and people can't change others. We've all heard the quote: "Be the change you want to see in the world."
