Ricardo Goncalves, @thecryptodrive, a very good friend of mine has told me plenty of times that I am very enthusiastic and those are words that really mean something to me in my heart. Smooth, @smooth, has also told me in Steemit.chat, "you are one of the most positive and inspiring community members. really great that you are so active." To go along with Ricardo's kind words, these are words that help me grow exponentially every day!
In all honesty, I have found who I am as a person just by being an active member on Steemit and from building relationships on Steemit and Steemit.chat. Moreover, I have gained so much knowledge from reading blogs to talking to millionaries on a daily basis!
One of the reasons I really enjoyed Steemit when I first started was because there was NO AGE LIMIT! To be honest, I thought I was going crazy! I thought I was going crazy because on nearly every website I have ever found where you can make money, you have to be over 18. While looking for jobs this summer, nobody would hire me because I was under 16 years of age. Steemit provided me with my first real job and I have made over $2,000 in a short amount of time which is super awesome!
You know what is really cool? If you're on a blockchain, AGE DOES NOT MATTER! With that being said, an 8 year old could trade cryptocurrencies or become a Steemer and become a millionare before they turn 18! That is just so crazy and frankly, I love it!
All in all, I have to say that this was the best summer of my LIFE! Steemit really helped me in many different ways and now I have made the choice to step up my game and become a Steem Witness!

Why Should You Vote For Me?
There are numereous reasons why you should vote for my witness! As reminded by a whale, @smooth, I am a very active member within the Steemit community! I am a daily writer for @steemsports, I enjoy curating content on a daily basis, and I want to do my part and help Steemit improve!
Additionaly, I love to market and advertise Steemit! Hence why I liaisoned with @steemdrive for a Steemit Billboard! Ricardo, @thecryptodrive, and I have many more projects coming up in the near future to advertise Steemit! You haven't seen anything until you see what we have up our sleeves!
Not to mention that my username is @theprophet0 and a prophet is a person regarded as, or claiming to be, an inspired teacher or leader. As mentioned by @smooth and others, I am told to be inspiring. This really makes me want to strive for greatness as others will if I will! Also, I absolutely love helping people out. With that being said, with great pride, every single liquid fund (SBD and Steem) will be donated to the following charities/organizations I will list below.
We are the Garden of Eden, a sustainable eco-community in Texas. We fed 40,000 free meals last year and saved 350,000 pounds of trash from the landfill, and we achieve a negative carbon footprint. We are dedicated to building a healthier, happier, and more sustainable world for ALL! It is our greatest dream to see all of humanity living peacefully, joyfully, abundantly, and responsibly!
Yet this reality shall exist only when we as individuals, en masse, are ready and willing to take full responsibility for aligning with it at the depths of our beings--that means truly loving ourselves, truly loving our planet, and truly loving one another. From that place of true love, all decisions made will be made for the benefit of all.
We are revolutionaries in every facet of life. We offer truly ethical merchantry, sustainable housing, and honorable food production solutions to one and all! We exist to showcase how easy, abundant, joyful and sustainable life can be!
Please visit their website and look into buying some of their wonderful products!
The main idea of SteemFund is to Crowdfund projects using community votes. Projects are organized and the identity of applicants is verified to provide safety to the backers. Steemfund then promotes a campaign to raise funds for the cause and, if successful, holds the applicant accountable for the funds raised.
The water crisis is real. It’s affecting women, children, families and farmers. Women and girls in sub-Saharan Africa are spending hours a day fetching dirty water which leads to illness and disease, robbing entire communities of their futures.
Lack of access to safe water and proper sanitation limits education and food production, it harms health and leads to a cycle of poverty.
We want to help our neighbors and we know you do too. When you support The Water Project, you help bring clean water through new wells, rehabbed wells, sand dams, rainwater catchment systems and/or spring protections to schools, medical clinics and villages.
We believe local in-country solutions, through local national leaders, can help end the water crisis one partnership at a time. We can’t wait to bring you into the heart of their stories.
I recommend for anyone who is reading this to donate some funds to one or more of the projects I just mentioned. All of them are going towards a great cause and coming from a fifteen yearold, it feels amazing to give!
Over a month ago, my dad @theprophet, got the Steem logo tattooed on his skin and it will be there until he dies! My dad was inspired by @craig-grant magic glass bead necklaces he made for me then my dad as well as by what I have accomplished on Steemit and therefore he decided too get his second tattoo ever of the Steem logo! That's dedication folks!
Current Projects I Work/Help Out For
SteemSports was born out of a community need to power up the masses of users to promote user retention through an alternate use of the platform for gamification in attempt to harness the global sports and sports betting communities, worth trillions of dollars to support the growth of Steem. This "free to play" project could very likely have its own frontend and sidechain in time, to further enhance functionality and create a niche platform while still contributing to the market cap and growth of the Steem blockchain.
I am a daily writer and editor for @steemsports.
@steemdrive a global marketing initiative for marketing the Steemit platform on spectacular size outdoor media, showing the world the power of the Steemit blockchain community and how "big ticket" items such as billboards are more than possible to crowdfund and thereby providing tangible credibility of Steemit post reward payouts.
First of all, I wanted to thank @npl77 for introducing me to my safe haven - Steemit. Without you, Nick, I would still be gambling and loosing money on a daily basis.
