“You have to do what you love”…
The words of one of the most successful people in the world, Steve Jobs, didn’t leave me indifferent. They became my motto and my life changed completely.
In our life we have to make a lot of choices. The choice of future profession is one of the most important.
I tried to choose the road that I had the most passion on because only then I can never really blame myself for making the wrong choices. Now I can always say I am following my passion.
Maybe for me it was not very difficult to make up my mind what I want to do in future, because I decided to do what I really loved. For me, the profession of teacher was ideal from the childhood. I have two great examples of people who do it with great love, kindness and madness, in a good sense of this word. The first one is my mom, and the second one is my school teacher of English. Probably that has made a big impact on me.
Why teacher of English??? I have always given the preference to the humanities. And at school I understood that I can’t imagine my life without foreign languages, foreign literature and creativity. The teacher is a great artist, this is for sure))). That’s why the choice of university and the department was obvious.
They say, the mediocre teacher tells, the good teacher explains, the superior teacher demonstrates, the great teacher inspires. And this is my main goal. To be the great one. Because there is no sense in teaching others if you can’t change their life, if you can’t open their minds and touch the hearts. To the world you may be just a teacher but to your students you are a hero.
No one is perfect and to achieve your dreams you should work hard every day, feel the life with naked nerves and continue to follow your dreams.
I will never regret my decision.
