I am a Step Closer to Achieving My Dream

Idon’t think there could have been something more exhilarating than being a Peace Ambassador. I am thrilled to be one of those people who were given a chance to live their dream of spreading peace–a dream not everyone can attain. I have always wanted to live in a place where I don’t have to worry about other people being victims of seemingly never-ending wars and conflicts. Being a Peace Ambassador was a big step for me towards this ambition.

As Peace Ambassadors, it was a pleasure for us to have worked together on our peace program, which was PeaceTa-Piyesta ( see related article). This activity has done me a lot of favors: it gave me opportunities to grow not just as a student, but also as a citizen; it taught me lessons I don’t think I would have learned from others; and most of all, it developed my skills, expanded my knowledge and cultivated my potentials.

One of the lessons I have learned is the lesson of using time properly. During our preparation, our weakness had been time. For me, it seemed like time was in a rush and that was what made me almost give up. Another lesson I have learned was the lesson of paying attention even to the smallest detail. I have learned that one simple thing may affect everything. Aside from this, I have learned lessons which helped me get by in life. One was to never give up despite all the difficulties and setbacks. I realized that giving up should not be an option. To give up is to quit, to quit is to fail and to fail would be the last thing I want.

Throughout the journey, I have kept this in mind: God helps those who help themselves. So, I went on, I helped myself and my fellows, I persevered, and I am glad I did because it was all worth it. Yes, everything was worth the sweat we have shed, the efforts we have exerted, the nights we have spent on planning and preparing for the big event and all the things we have done in order to make this event successful. Because of all of our efforts and the unwavering support of our school, teachers and our parents, our peace program was very meaningful. We are so happy that we were able to pull off such a significant activity. We are happy that it has turned out the way it is supposed to, which is to be an instrument in promoting peace. I am grateful that I am a part of the activity. It gave me more than I expected. I may have experienced problems, but now I know they are part of the learning process. Most of all, I am thankful because I have done something that contributes to bringing and spreading peace. It makes me proud to say: “I am a Peace Ambassador. I have taken the first step in my journey to a peaceful world. I am a step closer to achieving my dream.”
