Assignment Title: Your Hopes, Dreams, And Fears – Writing Assignment

A letter to me:

“I imagine my life simple: my kids healthy and happy, equipped with their own moral code and decent values. That’s it. Nothing big, nothing special. I image in 10 years, a mountain of memories, good memories of many smiles. I don’t imagine me in 10 years. I imaging my kids, being agents in the world, making a change, being who they are. I imagine the world a little bit better than today.

I love working. I love the work I do, the job I hold. In 10 years I hope I made an impact, I hope I made a change. I hope that this little idea I have right now grows into something big, I hope I figure it out. Soon. I don’t know if I hope for a career, but I certainly want to make an impact, an impact that creates change in education, in the way we learn, in the way we teach, in the way we make decisions about educational practices. Ideally, I imagine I am a founder of a project or a co-founder of something not necessarily big. But important. Something, that people we look and say: “this made a difference”. Or just be a small part of something good, something that sparks change in education. To make education more available, more effective, addressing real problems, cultivating real skills, focused on communities and cultures. A free, accessible education, encouraging collaboration and sharing of ideas. An education where everyone matters, and all voices are heard regardless of titles.

I dream of surfing, of being able to get on the board without looking into my fears of the ocean, the giant waves and the unknown underneath my feet, the sharks. I dream of being able to be brave in any situation, of not calculating risk, determine rational. I fear of loosing hope, of compromising own values, of becoming cynical and skepticle.

In 10 years I hope I am – me.”
