“I just became emotional as I realized how impactful our presence was to the community and how proud I was of being part of that accomplishment.”

 

1. Which community did you volunteer at, and what did you work on while you were there?

I volunteered for two years in Harrah, WA, which is actually my hometown. Both years I assisted my team in preparing materials/tasks and helped lead my team members while mentoring the students we worked with.

2. How has being a part of ASB impacted your goals and dreams for the future?

Being part of ASB has impacted my goals and dreams for the future as I have developed a passion for mentoring younger students. It has inspired me to continue giving back to my community, whether that’s helping revise college essays or giving advice to the students.

3. What is a favorite memory you have during your time with ASB?

One of my favorite memories that I have during my time with ASB occurred on my last year during the celebration day we have for the students. After the whole team gave out certificates my team asked me to say a couple words to the students and parents. After my “speech” I just became emotional as I realized how impactful our presence was to the community and how proud I was of being part of that accomplishment.
