Although I would consider myself at this present stage ‘fulfilled’ something was missing.
It truly makes me appreciate everything I have been given and it makes me more willing to give back to those who are less fortunate than I am.
Volunteering provides me with a new perspective on my life, by seeing the trials and struggles of others that I am able to help them overcome through my service.
Additionally, I have to say I thoroughly enjoy the sincere appreciation that the directors of the organization show after a day of volunteer work.
The Legacy Scholarship has introduced me to many organizations whose directors have devoted their life to helping others, therefore the least I can do is help out when I can.
I have worked extremely hard and received high grades.
I have a close knit group of friends and my teachers and I have mutual respect for each other .
Whether it be coaching a tennis clinic at the Bush Tennis Center or doing arts and crafts at The Petroleum Museum, the smiles on their faces really make it all worth it to me.
While I am setting an example, we are also having fun.
Volunteering is a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community and help those around you.
My first experience of volunteering for a community service agency was when I was an ornery teenager entering high school.
