Everyone wants to become successful in the future, right? When you were younger, you were always asked, “What do you want become when you grow up?” Some said a princess, rich, a singer, a fashion designer and even to fly! (Literally). But as we are growing up, that question will be asked again. Yet this time seriously. Some said a doctor, an MP, an architect, etc. But in order to achieve this, you must work hard for it. Many people dream but don’t believe, whilst believers are dreaming even bigger.
When I was younger, I’ve always had a fairy-tale like dream about my future. To marry my prince, have a fairy Godmother, be a princess… But now, all of that has changed. I’ve realised how hard life is now; that life cannot be like a fairy-tale. What you want can’t happen just like that. I want something more realistic, practical and down to Earth. I can’t put faith in my fairy Godmother; I have to work for my goals. Magic isn’t going to help everything. Hope is something everyone needs.
As I have mentioned earlier, everyone wants to become successful in the future. I do also; I want to go University, yet I haven’t decided what for so far. I want to grow up and make my Parents proud, especially when my Dad’s up there watching over me. I want to be happy. But every step I take, has the potential of changing my entire path, where my life is leading. So I must live life to the full, no matter what. Hope is something everyone needs.
My list of Hope and Dreams can go on forever, but one ‘Hope’ I find significant is: ‘Hoping there will be a day when Cancer, is just a Zodiac sign.’ Cancer continues to be a major disease in many countries. The numbers of those dying from Cancer in the world are increasing. It is estimated that 7.2 to 7.5 million people worldwide die from Cancer each year. Some people in this room may know someone who has either died from Cancer or has Cancer. I pray for those who are fighting through such a tough battle, to never give up and live your Hopes and Dreams.
Hope is something everyone needs.
