“It was always important to me that I did something meaningful with my Spring Break as well as explore a community that I had never been to.”
Which community did you volunteer at, and what did you work on while you were there?
I was part of the very first ASB in 2001 and went to La Push, WA. The next year, I led an ASB team in Brewster, WA. We worked with the local elementary students on a literacy project, writing stories and binding books together.
How has being a part of ASB impacted your goals and dreams for the future?
It was always important to me that I did something meaningful with my Spring Break as well as explore a community that I had never been to. It is amazing how much you can experience in just one short week that leaves you with such positive joy and memories to cherish for the rest of your lifetime.
What is a favorite memory you have during your time with ASB?
I loved being able to bond with my teammates as well as individual students in the community. Most of the students were really young when I met them, and they all have to be in their mid/late 20’s by now.
