Hello! My name is Keturah Carter but most people call me Tori. Growing up in a single parent home has taught me a lot. I learned how to be very independent, responsible and hardworking. Watching my mother provide for myself and my two older brothers by herself showed me that there is nothing that can get in your way. I was also afforded the opportunity to go to a suburban school, despite the fact I was living in an urban environment. I was placed in a program called Urban Suburban and the school I attended gave me lots of resources and the education of a lifetime. I never forgot about my home, knowing that I was very blessed to be in a circumstance where I received a top notched education. I was able to stay in touch with the reality of living in an urban environment through daily actions of going to school in the suburbs. I was able to see firsthand the inequalities that existed between the two places. I worked one summer in a recreation center in a really troubled neighborhood. I got to witnessed all types of people, especially children. These children were live and excited; I was able to see the enthusiasm they had about life. While of them came from homes dealing with drug use and physical abuse, these children still managed to place a smile upon their face every day. My personal career goals for when I graduate differ my personal community goals. My career goals include becoming a publicist for professional sports team such as the Los Angeles Clippers. But it when it comes to my community, I want to give back. Education is something that is important to me and to this day, I place a high amount of value on it. I believe it’s important for people to constantly learn new things and expand their knowledge. Knowledge is power. I would want to set up more education programs in the inner city that help expand the knowledge of the children. I believe without education, you can’t go very fair in life and I think it’s essential for these young children to grow. I wouldn’t wan to just help children in the inner city but also in the suburban schools because I witnessed peers of mine who struggled with learning disabilities. Knowledge is knowledge despite the location and I think all should be afforded the same opportunity.
