“With power comes great responsibility.”
I learned from Eleanor Roosevelt that in the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die, and the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility. Our roles and responsibilities at home, school and society – these 3 – are big factors to becoming successful.
Your role and assigned tasks at home help you become independent, self-reliant and knowledgeable. At home, I play the role of being the ‘Mother’ when my parents aren’t around. I am given the task to monitor the kids and provide them with meals. If I want the children to keep their feet on the ground, I should put some responsibility on my shoulder.
The role and responsibilities you play at school are roots to becoming knowledgeable, someone who always takes initiative, creative and someone people can rely on. My part, as a Senior High Student of Stonyhurst Southville International School, is to be an inspiration and role model to the younger ones. My role and responsibility are to be someone who teachers and someone the other classes can depend on and come to for help and advice because of how much I know and have learned throughout the years.
I believe we shouldn’t think about what society wants us to be, but what role we want to play in society. If you want to be a person who sits around at home behind the computer screen, go ahead. But if you want to be a person who gets up every day and work for what they want and reaches towards their goals and dreams as well as accodomates new information and learnings, you will and can achieve the most.
You are provided with the roles of being a parent at home, a role model at School, and freely whatever you want in society. You are given the responsibilities of giving information, providing the needs and goods, and becoming better throughout your whole life. The more you take responsibility, the more you are able to create the future you seek.
