lovesarahth asked: I just learned about micro-finance and I love it. And I love you for being one of the most inspiring people in my generation. This career goal (gender equality and social justice are also bitchin) sounds amazing beyond words. <3
D’aww :) Thank you Sarah! :D I just can’t wait to actually get started impacting positive change!
Talking About My Generation
Ever since I was little, I was told that the jobs my generation will make careers of do not yet exist. Given that I am far from technologically focused or scientifically gifted, I took this statement with a shrug of the shoulder and a smirk. Perhaps the details would be left to iron out, I thought, but I doubt my career path will be strikingly different from the careers open today.
I now find that I am only half correct. The career that I currently want to give my life to exists. Paths to access it as undergraduate or even young professional, on the other hand, do not. I want to use economic incentives and funding (micro-finance) in order to aid in eliminating poverty and gender inequality. There are many websites and programs that allow me to donate to different causes or efforts involved in the larger micro-finance industry, but there are few avenues to pursue internships or work, especially for someone of my age.
But hey, passions are worth fighting for. And for the first time in my adult(ish) life, I believe I know I want to do with my life. So I’m not giving this up easily.
This post also exists not only to declare my hopeful goal but also to note to those who read blog (all four of you, obviously :P) that there’s going to be an increase in posts relating to these topics. Hope you can handle it. Feel free to ask questions or message me links relating to micro-finance, gender equality, and social justice.
Sometimes I feel like I’ve been searching for word all my life. That’s how long I look at the screen, forgetting to type. I just can’t find it somewhere, those syllables, that taste. Everything I think of, just seems a waste. Without that word I can’t go on. Without the specific whisper I just wait.
