If I could live my dream life

Location

If I could have my dream job, I’d be on my way to medical school because I wouldn’t have to worry about loans or tuitions.

If I could have my dream job I’d be building schools in Africa for all the children, who walk miles every day for a drink of water,

If I could have my dream job, I’d be helping all the girls in China forced to work for unfair wages in poor conditions because the work field is just too competitive

If I could have my dream job, I’d be telling girls in India that they’re worth something so much more than being a “disappointment” from birth because they’re not a male.

If I could have my dream job, I’d be in Afghanistan fighting for women’s basic rights to vote or drive or walk down the street unescorted.

If I could have my dream job, I’d buy my dad a car so he didn’t have to take a two and a half train hour ride to work behind a counter.

If I could have my dream job, I’d buy my mom the new shoes she deserves because she’s too busy working fourteen hours a day trying to save up for my college tuition to go shopping.

If I could have my dream job, I’d want to end all of world suffering, because it’s in our basic human rights to live a happy, peaceful life.
