I believe in unlimited human potential. But in the villages far away from my city, it is hard to convince people that with determination and hard work we humans can achieve anything. In those villages, people are busy with everyday lives, they are afraid to try different things, they are even afraid to move to a different city in order to get education to improve their lives. Simply, they are afraid of challenges. I live in Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan. Like Seoul, this city is the most diverse city of our country with many possibilities to study, work, and personal development.
Although I live in the capital, I have a lot of relatives living in villages far away from the capital who I visit three to four times a year. When I visit them every time, I see how they are indifferent towards education. They think that education leads them nowhere, they were born there, they will grow old there, and nothing can help them to improve their lives. When I speak to elders, they say that government will reach them one day and then their lives will improve. Honestly, our country got its independence in 1991 from the former Soviet Union and nowadays our government is doing many reformations to improve people’s lives. I think it will take a while before the new reformations reach every corner of our country.
I think people should have some courage to improve their lives themselves and challenge towards a better life now. So, I decided to study psychology which is the study of people, the mind and behaviour. I think maybe if I know the mind and human behavior better, then I can reach the soul of discouraged people in the villages and ignite their enthusiasm toward a better life. I would like to teach these people in the villages that human potential is limitless and with the desire, determination, dedication, and discipline anyone can achieve anything they want in life, no matter which part of the world they live in, how they look like, and what their financial state is.
