A Different Transformation.

I promise you, I’m always there. When your heart is filled with sorrow and despair. I’ll carry you when you need a friend. You’ll find my footprints in the sand.

Those were the words sang by British singer, Leona Lewis. Why did I post it, you may ask. Because it had left me in a trembling state. The song spoke to me in so many ways. It is also the main reason why I want to be pediatrician. A few weeks back, I was challenged by someone who told me dreams are meant to be dreams. But what if I were to tell you that dreams are ALWAYS meant to be what YOU WANT to be.

Being a pediatrician does not mean I just want to be a kid doctor. I want to be more than that. I want to change the world. How? Well, I want to change the lives of children globally. So that is why, I want to make the difference in my school by forming a “You Make The Difference Team” and go around telling my school about how children who suffer from poverty/abuse out there that they still have someone who they could still count on.

I want to tell them that they still have someone to lean on and want them to know that life isn’t always filled with suffering for there are people who are here to lend you his/her hand. I was then questioned “Why a pediatrician? And not just a volunteer?” It is a funny question and I have your answer. Not everyone has a passion in being a kid doctor. Not everyone could go through the patience in taking care of children. As you may know, child abuse and unwanted babies have indeed risen lately.

I want to be a pediatrician who could bring smiles to children and tell them to fight. I want to tell them that they can’t just give up. I want to tell them that if someone or something is strong enough to bring you down, show them you’re strong enough to get back up. Why, you may ask, is it so important for me to make a difference. There is no denying that we’ve all been a kid. We have all been wanted to be notice as a kid. Mind you, we were also seeking for attention.

So let’s just pretend that you were a 4-year-old who is suffering from poverty and you are about die. You may think that this world is cruel and God is unfair to you because He has left you in this state. You wonder why you are in this state, where everyone is off having a better life than you. You also just wish that all the suffering could stop. That is what a 4-year-old in Johannesburg, South Africa who is currently lying on the streets just waiting for someone to come and help him.

He is waiting for someone to whisper in his ear saying “I’m here, and I’m here to help you.” What if that was you? Lying there just waiting for the world to change? What if you were that kid who is just screaming out hoping someone would hear your cries? This brings me to my main point. I want to cure not only sick children but also cure their broken hopes and dreams. They need us more than you could ever imagine. They may be small but a life is a life.

My title of this post is to tell you that I want a different change. A different and better life for the children. This post is to speak out to you that everyone is entitle to help whether you are near or far. One help can make a big transformation. May I remind you that each child have his/her dreams and hopes. Their dreams on waiting for the world to change and for someone to tell them it’s all over. And it is my dream to see them smile again.

Do you want to be that someone? That someone who could be the wall for these children? That someone who could tell the world to put a stop in the suffering? Well, I’m going to be that someone. So, do you want to that someone too?

    A “You Make The Difference Team”. =]

  2. Definitely.

    Your ambition is truly inspiring and people not only from our school, but outside of bounds will aspire to be as courageous and kind like you. Poverty and injustice shall be abolished and start anew with these young children who suffered not just physically, but mentally and spiritually as well. This is an opportunity to bring confidence, happiness and optimism back on track in each and everyone of them.

    We should all do our best to provide for them now and be no more selfish. We should stop the greed and start giving.

    Kudos, Winnie. 🙂

  8. I’m going to change the world and turn it all over again with smiles and happiness. Of course there is sad, sometimes. But at least the people who’s suffering from all the disease could take a chance and believe that- they could have a chance to live and not just die like that. 🙂
