My name is Ximena Latapi. I'm from Saltillo, Coahila, a small city in Mexico. I live in a society where I see difficult and unfair things everyday. I know it is hard to make a change, but I try to do the best I - a 17 year old - can. I am part of a student group called Causas Unidas, United Causes in Spanish, where we look for different situations in our community where people need help. We try to help them not financially, but with activities and work that we can make ourselves. Apart from this, I like to think I am making society better by doing the simple things correctly, like picking up trash in the street even though it's not mine, driving correctly and according to the speed limit, and always being honest in my work at school. I believe that we first need to do small things with integrity, and then do the big ones. I also strongly believe that we each have our own way to contribute to society, and I believe my path is through science.
