Why I Serve Statement:
I serve because I have been a firsthand witness and have experienced injustice and I want to encourage others to stand up for injustice. I want to leave this world a little better than I found it so I live by the words of the activist Dolores Huerta: “Every moment is an organizing opportunity, every person a potential activist, every minute a chance to change the world.” I chose government as my major in hopes to make this change and I aspire to go to law school to focus on immigration and civil rights law. Afterwards, I hope to work for a non-profit and/or become a public servant. This is what lead me to join the South Texas Alternative Breaks trip so that I cause this experience to influence my public service.
