When people ask what I want to do with my future, I notice myself jumping to the thought of making my mother proud. Growing up, my mom had always taught me to be kind, have courage and conquer the world. Growing up, I was bullied.

I want people to careless about one’s race and culture, and simply stop judging other people based on what they look like or where they came from.

Interviewers may no longer criticize one’s look and culture, affecting their final decision upon acceptance. One’s perception of other effects not only the current situation, but many rely on that one opportunity to live their life, their future, their career. It is difficult to pursue this change, many people are taught for many years to carry a certain perspective of the world and now asking them to change their “morals” is difficult. I am not saying one’s “morals” are incorrect, but when a different perspective is proposed, they may see the better light for a change. I know
