" Even the smallest act of kindness can go the longest way. Giving back and helping others is something I have always been passionate about. I learned my true passion and calling in life through community service, and seeing the difference one can make is exceptional. My goal is to help others find the same love in volunteerism in ways that relate to their own passions and interest. I hope to be a guide in someone's life in something positive, that leads to a chain reaction of change. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Community & Me
I believe living a life focused beyond one's personal needs enables you to better serve the people around you and make the world a better place. While in high school, I completed over 450 hours of service in my four years through various events and places. I am very dedicated to giving back to my community and do it with extreme joy and excitement. The love for community service I found in high school and the leadership skills I have aquired motivate me to start an activist group to encourage and involve youth in service learning and instill in them the qualities of a great citizen. I want to form a platform that serves youth a positive, inspiring place for them to meet new people, gain new skills, and form new memories, all while giving back to others and their community. I want volunteering to be more than just a graduation requirement students need to complete. This will be accomplished through planned volunteer events, advocating service learning, and partnering with schools to get students involved. There will be a website and social media pages to help share service learning ideas and events, as well. This will act as a central group that allows students to find and reach out to the organizations and events they feel most passionate about.
