“Wow… I haven’t really thought through my response because, mahn, I wanted to be so many things. And it is just interesting and funny. Like when I was nine I wanted to be a soldier. Imagine that. I wanted to be a soldier. [chuckle] I wanted to be a model. I wanted to be a pediatrician. I wanted to be a civil engineer at some point. I have had so many dreams. I think we have all had so many dreams. So yeah, I wanted to be all those things but I guess when it comes down to it, I just want to make positive impact in the world. Really, that’s it. And I think that should be the goal for everyone -in our own little way. I am inspired by my friends and so many others who I can see progressing towards that daily.”
“This one has made me think. And I love this question. What I believe is that we can achieve world peace. There is totally no proof of that. I have not seen a period in time where a certain country or a certain group was not fighting against another group. Yeah, there are so many pieces of conflict in the world right now and I believe a major one is the limited resources that we have. You know, things like that. Amongst other things obviously but mostly we are all competing for space, for limited resources, limited opportunities and things like that. But I do believe if we all came from a point where we understand each other and we understand that we are competing for the same things. That we… basically, we are not going anywhere – none of us is going anywhere. We are all here trying to live on this planet. and we try to get some sort of understanding of each other. That we could survive together in a harmonious community and there would be peace.”
“Even saying that out loud to myself feels like [eeerrrrr] “Do you really believe this? Could this be achieved?” But, I mean, it would be such a fantastic world. So no proof but I believe we could achieve world peace. Just my belief.”
“Heh! si nimeemphasize (Damn! I have emphasized).”
