    I do not want to be famous.

    I do not want people to know my name. I just want to make the future a brighter place. I try to do this every day, one young person at a time. I teach middle school so I can make a difference.

    Don't we all... But there's a difference

    between "wanting to" and actually "making" a different. I intend to make a difference in the world.

    This honestly is one of the primary reasons

    that drew me to law enforcement both as a profession and a career. I still do my best to keep this desire at the forefront of my mind every day on the job, through the good times and the bad.

    Sometimes we say the worst thing in life is to

    lose what we love the most, it's to have what we love and want taken away from us, permanently. But that isn't true, there are worse things in life than permanently losing what we love. Life can take away what we love, turn it into something we fear, we hate, something that can...

    Recently, I've been getting really into machine

    learning. When people ask me what it is, I sometimes tell them that it's just a way to use math and computers to get solutions to most problems. If that sounds like too inclusive a definition of what it can do, that's probably because it really can do quite a lot. Some of the...

    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."

    The work I do is pretty important I feel,

    helping restore the sculptures at the cathedral. Our heritage is important. Far too much of life is made plastic by the media, and popular culture. I guess it is making a difference, but I'd like to do more!

    Some people say, whatever life gives you is

    meant for you, is something you need, is something you are supposed to get, but that isn't quite true, for me, almost everything life gives me is nothing but a lesson, it's nothing but a phase and I always end up losing it but at the same time, gaining something that will stay...
