My parents once told me, “Take risks because the greatest risk in life is missing opportunities.” Although the idea of making a difference might seem daunting, I feel that people should take initiative and run with their passions even if there is a risk of failure. Feel that life is too short to not make a difference when life gives you countless of opportunities to make even the smallest difference to someone’s lives. I am not trying to solve world hunger or achieve world peace on a day to day basis, but I try my best to even do little things to make a difference to causes that I think are important.
On my opinion, any little difference I make can somehow contribute to the overall picture and add up into something bigger in the long run. Every time when I go out to eat or go run errands with my parents, I try to buy locally produced, organic, non-GMO foods. I am passionate about food and the environment, so even if I cannot write multi-million dollar checks or somehow change the minds of countless of people at once to support my cause, I can contribute little by little to those small sustainable co-ops and family run farms to help motivate them to continue to do what they are doing to the best of their ability in hope that others will also support our cause. This is one of many little ways that I try to make a difference.
