"I am applying to participate in the Peace Exchange because I want to be able to help reduce the violence in my communities. I want to apply what I learn through the Peace Exchange program to real world problems."
"I have many goals as a peace leader, which include: developing a better understanding of how others handle violence and being aware of the things that we can learn from other people and cultures, finding creative solutions in order to achieve peace, teaching others about alternatives to violence, bringing comfort to others so as to make sure that they are not living in constant fear within their communities, and inspiring and empowering others through the work that we do as the Peace Exchange."
"As a peace builder and leader, I hope to set an example that will change how others think and eventually cause them to follow. I want to stop the violence in my community and I want to change how others think of violence."
"The Peace Exchange program appeals to me because it will help me start my goals for my future career. Out of all the careers and activities that I want to do, my biggest goal is travel around the world helping others."
