Last year was community day 2013. It was about voice and expressing yourself vocally. This year is community day 2014. This year is about voice, but not vocally, online. Expressing yourself online can be easier than vocally. A few taps and clicks and you have posted something that can never be deleted, ever. With that in mind doesn’t it make you a little hesitant to start a blog or express yourself online? Yeah, sure, but there is also the chance that you gain a little awareness, and from that little amount of awareness you could manage 200,000 signatures. Also, as a 12 year old at Riverdale Country School, I know that no matter how old you are you can change the world. If you are thinking of comparing this year’s community day to last year, then most people would take the online opportunity. But, let’s say you have an idea for a fundraiser that you are really invested in. Bring it to the community, show you’re dedicated. Once again, the domino effect comes into play. Once your school becomes invested in it then the state, the country, the world. If you are thinking of starting a fundraiser or charity, this would be my suggestion. Use both methods. Gain awareness online and show what the idea you have means to you. Let the community hear what you have to say because if it means a lot to you, then it is important. Trust me, in a community like Riverdale, everyone is there to support your idea. Lastly, don’t be afraid to fail. Keep trying. Don’t be afraid to take risks, and stand up to an audience and express yourself. Don’t be afraid to take criticism online and in real life, it can be constructive. Dive in. Make the world hear you. It’s possible, you can change the world.
