Education is something I care deeply about. I have always grown up in a home were education was made the number one priority. My mother came from poverty and an alcoholic family from a very bad part of California, and was able to put herself through school and earn two bachelors degrees and a masters, despite being told college was for her brothers and that she was destined for secretary school. I'm inspired by my mother's story and the ability of education to change lives for the better. Even though I grew up poor I always had access to a good education, my grandparents even help me pay for my own college. Its hard to imagine in this world of privilege people who don't even have basic literacy or writing skills. Without these basic tools how can we ever expect someone to improve themselves or their community? I truly believe education is power in every way, and I really believe in women;s education. Educating women is an important step in population reduction and women's rights across the world.
