I am going to put it out there right away that I am an idealist deep to the core. My definition of an idealist is someone who is a catalyst for change. They see injustice in the world and they work toward ideal solutions. They believe that the ideal solution, no matter how difficult, can be achieved through education, kindness, love, and hard work. They have an altruistic view of the world.
