And the race is off. One after another, they take their turn with the egg on the spoon, down to the cone and back, careful not to drop the egg. We have a comfortable lead with three kids left to go. We can win this. It is up to me to encourage my last three to victory. “Come on guys, take your time, we got this!” The final one crosses the finish line and the team jumps to their feet in excitement. “WE WON!” There is not a face shy of a satisfied smile.

The kids in underprivileged Mound Bayou, Mississippi showed me there is nothing greater than seeing a child succeed. I want to help children to accomplish every task set before them. With my education, I will be more equipped to teach, motivate, lead, and inspire children to fulfill the plan God has set for them.
