The Story Behind Today's Gift
After years of hard work he achieved a PhD in Statistics. That means he’s now a member of the 2%. That’s how many people have the opportunity, the interest, and the gumption to reach the pinnacle of scholastic excellence. But education without work experience only goes so far. He’s been looking for a job for almost a year, diligently applying and interviewing for positions. Even with the world shut down with a pandemic, he continues to seek out opportunities and work towards his future. Sooner or later, he knows he’ll succeed. Until then, he just keeps working at it, step by step and day by day.
He’d like a good job, of course. One to pay the bills and create a comfortable life for himself and his family. But he also wants to make a positive difference in the world. He’s very interested in social justice. He wants to see everyone climb the ladder of success and enjoy a comfortable life.
Many statisticians are employed by large companies to focus on monetization, using statistical analysis to understand customer behavior and increase sales. He’ll do that if he needs to, to get work experience. But it would be so much more satisfying to study data to protect underprivileged groups and to promote practical solutions that increase access to opportunities. It would be enormously satisfying to use statistics to reduce the ugliness in the world and to increase all that is good.
His family and friends are all so proud of him! They thinks he’s brilliant and very good. They’re evaluating him based on the evidence and data, on his countless selfless actions and the way he stays open to new ideas. They’re excited to see where life takes him and they knows that he’s going to make a big and positive difference in the world.
