Why I give back

I give back because I want to make the world smile. I remember a moment from when I was young, I brought a drawing to show my mom. It was a picture of the interior of a ship and I had drawn people working and going about. I was so into explaining the picture that I didn’t see her face until I heard her laugh. That moment of seeing a smile on her face made me so proud. Even to this day, making work for myself for money sometimes makes me feel like I am hoarding all of the happiness. The simple act of bringing a smile to a person’s face makes me happy and in that small way, I feel like I have made a difference in the world.
