Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Today I felt like my career has an special attachment to all humans' concern. This is something that doesn't happen to often when you have a career involving humanities. In philosophy, you usually talk about thinking processes, knowledge, values, meanings to a bunch of stuff, among others; but today, I was challenged to use all my intellectual abilities in answering a simple question.
I was asked: "What do we live for?" on a meeting I had with an assistant professor. Despite the fact of me being a freshman, I tried to answer it by articulating all kinds of memories that went through my mind at the moment. I could only remember opinions from little talks I had with people at different times. "I live for my family", "I live so that I can have professional growth", "I live because it is a gift and an eternal award in the end", "Life is a journey so I live to travel and meet new people and cultures".
However, I was not happy with the answer I gave. Throughout the rest of the day I realized I didn't live for any of those reasons; I realized I live for curiosity.
I can now tell you I have curiosity at a level in which I get involve in different things that have interested me. In my whole life, I have had classes of guitar, taekwondo, singing, chess, ballet, athletics, soccer, photography, volleyball, gimnastic, and so much more activities. I have become an integrated person with all of these skills because of my curiosity in each one of them. I am curious about colors, about sports, about people from another country, about history, about art; about life. I am curious about my future and every little thing that is taking me there. I live for these curiosities and the ones that are coming too.

I have just told you what is the meaning of my life; what's yours?
