Amid an age full of inequity and global issues, it often feels impossible to make substantial positive change. To illustrate my process of helping the larger global community, I want to make change and demonstrate ways of progress. This project is meant to help low-income children internationally access education throughout their lives. Youth4Good has planned shoe and backpack drives to donate to unhoused individuals in Mexico, and we plan on holding more drives for different products internationally. Through Youth4Good, I will initiate fundraising events and drives to raise money and goods. This will be transported to a nonprofit organization in Mexico. I will document my research, talk to others, and research inequality in other spaces. I plan to expand my worldview by stepping out of my comfort zone to meet kids who live entirely different lives. This project documents my journey to inspire others to take action and find ways to help the community.
