My name is Eloise Rose Lopez, I am currently a student at the Northern Marianas College, majoring in Elementary Education. I took my chance to become a teacher/counselor because I want to make a difference in my children's lives and show them the pathway to success, which is the purpose and following their dreams. When I was writing my poetry, I thought of how I wanted to go off-island for college and pursue science education. However, I also thought about how I'm going to be leaving my family, but seeing my friends go off to college got me jealous too. Although, as I started my summer by doing beach-clean ups and getting involved in the community-- I realize how fortunate I am to be living on an island of paradise. That is when I wrote this poem as my source of inspiration and really dig in my thoughts about my future. Also, it is never too late to see the world, but for now, my island needs me. With our economy being at one of the negative shape. I want to be able to make that change and help sustain our culture and the beauty of our environment. It is an irresistible look and I am afraid that when I do leave to fulfill my life-choices, I will come back with nothing left behind for my children to see what home was like to me. My future is there. I want to be able to share the stories I once had when I was in Saipan. But for now, let me create that impact. Let me make that difference. Because This is How Our Horizon will Look.
