    **Imagine the place where you spend most of your time each day. Where is it?** *My home is in the New York City. *

    1- What is your #1 vision for change that will make it that way? The first vision I have for changing my home into an ideal place for me is to have every tool I need in order to work. I wish I had a big enough space to put all of the equipments I need for my own creations and school works such as a professional printer, little wood shop, little ceramic shop and huge worktable.

    2- After your #1 thing happens, how will everyone benefit? Everyone, friends and classmates, can be benefited by coming over to work together in a more effecting way.

    3- Give some examples of what you can do (on your own/ with a group) to make your vision a reality. First, I can build some more shelves with my friends to store most of my stuff on the wall in a neat way; therefore, I will have more space for my work studio. Second, I can find a part-time job to save some money for the printer.

    4- **Imagine your neighborhood the way you most want it to be. What is your #1 vision for change that will make your neighborhood that way?** I wish my neighborhood could be more friendly and harmonious.

    5- After your #1 thing happens, how will everyone in your neighborhood benefit? If everyone knows each other in the neighborhood, everyone will live happier and stronger. Also, there will be less crime since people in the neighborhood know how the dynamic is floating.

    6- Give some examples of what you can do (on your own/with a group) to make your vision a reality. If every neighborhood has a free community center that has park, gym and restaurants, people would have more change to gather together. However, the system of the community center must be very organized in order to attract people in the neighborhood.

    7- **Imagine your country the way you most want it to be. What is your #1 vision for change that will make it that way?** I imagine the country I’m living in now to new medical system.

    8- After your #1 thing happens, how will everyone in your nation benefit? It would be much easier for people to see doctor, if there are many small doctor offices. Also, there are only big hospitals for people to go, so any kinds of problem people go to big hospitals. The medical system should be more organized in order to reach the efficiency for people and for the country.

    9- Give some examples of what you can do (on your own/with a group) to make your vision a reality. I think Asia has very good example for the system. I would like to borrow ads and media’s power to let the government knows people do care about the medical system in the country.

    10- **Imagine the world the way you most want it to be. What is your #1 vision for change that will make the world that way?** I wish this world could be greener. I want everyone to be the doctor for the earth.

    11- After your #1 thing happens, how will everyone—regardless of where they live, the resources they have, or what they believe—benefit? If everyone can put health of earth, Mother Nature will cherish us too.

    12- *Give some examples of what you can do (on your own/ with a group) to you’re your vision a reality. * By designing a better recycling system, for example, starting from the manufacturing process. Since I’m a design student, I would like to share the knowledge I learned from school with those manufacture after I’m capable enough. For now, I would like to design as many product by using recycle material as I can. If everyone can do recycling every time, it will save a lot of energy and waste (developed countries). By educating those undeveloped countries the right principles and notions in order to keep up the balance of the world.

    Countryside often has better community system naturally. Is that because usually they don’t have huge population or there are only countable shops they can go? I think the world is already interacting one to another; the same thing can definitely happen in another place.

    As my experience, if there is a patient has whatever kind of problem that he or she cannot solve by his/herself, they much go emergency in a big hospital. Usually, there is a long line unless the patient is dying; otherwise, the patient has to wait at lease for 2 hours. In Asia, there are many little licensed personal hospital such as otolaryngology or internal medicine. Those personal hospitals help the efficiency of patient floating so much.

    Scientists already announced that the climate of earth is changing; in other words, they call it global warming. There are three major problem that cause global warming; CFCs, emission of CO2 (carbon dioxide) and methane. By recycling those up cycling material, it reduces the emission of CO2 and saving fossil fuel so much; in other words, it is one stone shoots two birds.
