İ am seeking opinions corrections, any suggestions that may be helpfull. Thank you!!!!
İ can definetly say that i had a very fortunate childhood. Growing up in Turkey, going to a french school, having a very select group of friends, basically living in a bubble that was protecting me from the outside world. Today, my life is not so different. İ live and work in Nyc, where small things can quickly become big problems, if not seen from the right perspective.
İ was lucky enough to learn couple different languages from young age, to travel and also to live in different countries. There is nothing i love more than travelling, meeting new people and submerging myself in a different culture. İ believe it's a very special expericence that expands your vision of the world.
Turning 27 years old in a week, i come to realize that i do not want to lead the life i am leading today. İ have no desire to work for a billion dollar corporation to help them make more billions. İ would like to be a part of something different, something that matters.
İ have had many volunteering experiences; from tutoring immigrant kids to helping seniors, from spending time with homeless people to visiting addicts on holidays. Each of these gave me a fullfilement no other job did.
İ would love to take this passion to the next level and start doing it profesionally.
İ have no doubt that being a unv wont be easy. Many obstacles will have to be surpassed but i am up for the challenge.
İ believe my multicultural past, my education and my passion for volunteering will make me a great asset for the united nation's volunteers. This position will allow me to become the person i want to be in life and work for a cause i care deeply. İt will help me surpass everyday problems and focus on what really matters. İ would be honored to be a part of an organisation like the united nations.
After all like Dalai Lama once said " it is not enough to be compassionate, we must act".
thank you for all your help in advance!!
