Having a platform you wholeheartedly support is crucial in making a positive impact on societies around the world. That is why I have chosen to make education the main focus of my platform. Volunteer teaching in Thailand is a powerful way that I will be able to make a difference. Teaching English will be the ultimate goal of volunteering. Through establishing a strong grasp of the English language, students in Thailand will be able to access greater opportunities in terms of further education and careers.
Volunteers are an extremely valuable resource to teachers and students. Volunteers not only benefit the community around them but also their own personal growth including sharpening teaching skills, becoming better leaders, and developing a sense of pride in contributing to students' success. “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world,” as Nelson Mandela said. Education helps people become better, well-rounded citizens by influencing morals and increasing overall knowledge of society and the world as well as creating opportunities to obtain life-long career paths. Education shows society the importance of hard work and perseverance while also helping individuals mentally grow and develop. Therefore, through education, teachers are able to influence the improvements of society through the knowledge of science, history, rights, laws, and regulations. Specifically, learning languages through educational processes assists in the interactions with different people in order to share ideas, knowledge, and practices. Learning languages encourages people to live in harmony.
I believe a platform that revolves around serving the growth of children can be a positive, influential method to help the innocent humans make tremendous impacts in the future.
