At the end of my junior year my teachers selected me to represent my high school in the Rotary Club sponsored World Affairs Seminar I traveled across the country on a plane all the way to Carroll University in Wisconsin During the seminar I listened to numerous lectures on gender and social equity given by people from a variety of countries Here I began to see the mistreatment of people all over the world even in the United States based on their gender or race I never experienced this before in my hometown As I listened to each lecture I began to understand more and more of the problems existing in our society related to gender and race This would include the discrimination and sexism often promulgated by popular culture in the form of movies television shows and video gamesIn addition we were told about atrocities against women in countries like Egypt The most shocking story was from a young woman from Egypt who while attempting to get an education was imprisoned by her parents I was immediately upset to hear that people suffered such horrible prejudices but then I started to realize something else I was not the only person affected in this manner and soon all of our discussions evolved from defining the problems to finding solutions At this moment I realized it was up to me and my generation to change the world We not only have the ability to change the world but the drive to do itThe other profound experience of the seminar was meeting and talking to all of the students or as we were called delegates from all over the world For example on the second day of the seminar just after one of the lectures while walking around the center of campus talking to various students I discovered one of these people also played tennis We planned to go hit later that evening On our way back
