I Want To Be An African-American Woman

Satisfactory Essays

Trees do not start off touching the stars. First, their roots dig deep into the earth and grasp onto any nutrients created by the trees that fell before them. They have to dig deep, to grow tall. As a product of those who came before me, I have to do the same. I want to be a Supreme Court Justice. I look up to those like Thurgood Marshall and Katherine Johnson, who paved the way for other minorities in their field. To date, there hasn't been an African-American female in that honorable black robe...I plan on being that female. There hasn't been a better time than this to show the world that my branches won't falter in the wind, and that my leaves won't fall at the first sight of snow. I need to be the change that I want to see in the world.
