As a young kindergarten student at naptime, I was always restless, simply because my playing such a small role in the world seemed inadequate to me at the time. As the years wore on, though, I realized that the saying, "You must crawl before you can walk," is very true. Every great person had to endure being a child, teenager, and so forth. Therefore, I no longer wish to be older. These transitional years are the years in which we learn the most.

I, personally, think my love for people and desire to help in any and every way I can makes me an excellent candidate for governmental offices.

Lastly, if I haven't made it clear, I am going to fulfill my dreams. Having all of these traits and thoughts seems to be a pretty good foundation to run for office. Ambition, passion, and love are among three of my best attributes overall, not just as a politician. Now, there are
