The Thought of Global Education

This is a picture of me in the room I grew up in after I attended a historically black college. When I was growing up in this room (ages 7 to 18) it didn’t look like this at all. The reason why is because of the lack of global education I had obtain throughout my elementary, middle, and high school years. Kissimmee, Florida is mostly populated with Hispanics and Caucasian so in history classes majority was based on Hispanic and American history. As a kid and teenager of course I saw no problem with that. Once I attended an HBCU I learned so much more not only about African American history but also about the history of other countries as well. When I attended an International college for graduate school American history was also taught differently to me because it was the same subjects taught while I was in middle and high school but there was so much left out that I believe could have been taught while I was in high school. After I graduated from my undergraduate and graduate school, one of my main goals in life was to be able to create positive change in the world somehow some way and I become more involved with community works in my city and began the process to help those in need. I believe that global education being taught at a younger age would benefit the power globalization can have on this earth because it would spark minds at a young age to create change and to start thinking about what they can do to make the world a better place to live on. I believe in taking it to as far as making globalization into a core class to take in order to graduate would benefit the world as a whole. These just some of the things I think of when I wake up in the morning and I see the phrase “Change the World”. Being taught one way about a world is okay but being taught globalization multiple ways with a different perspective is overly beneficial to the world as a whole in my eyes.
