Omni Brewer speaks about the importance of secondary education


Omni Brewer 10 has been very passionate about helping people for a long time. “When I was in third grade, there was this really nice kid and I asked him for two dollars and I never paid him back,” Brewer said. “I feel really bad about it. I still wake up in the middle of the night thinking about it.”

Omni Brewer 10 wants to become a geneticist so she can do her part to make the world a better place.

“I want to be a geneticist. Hopefully, I can be remembered for helping treat chromosomal diseases. Cancer as well, which I feel is a really weird goal because you can’t cure cancer. I just want to better understand cancer so we can better treat it. I wanted to be a politician for a few years.  I wanted to be secretary of defense. There is a lot of reform that needs to happen with our military. In this case, you can almost take it from the inside where you can’t in other systems. And I’m a military kid so I’ve greatly benefited from the military. I do reap the benefits of that. In general, though, I think that I just want to make a change. I don’t think that people should have to give their life away and go to war just to go to college. Someone could have cured AIDs by now but they just never got the opportunity because they live in a place where they don’t have access to the resources they need. There are a lot of kids that are born into poverty so they don’t get the same chances and opportunities for these things. No matter how smart they are, they can’t make an effect on the world. I think that it’s important to make sure that every kid has the opportunity and chance to use their talents to better the world.”
