Past Volunteer Activites: I have been volunteering since my freshmen year in highschool and have participated in many different events. Recently, I co-lead a trip to Guatemala for animal rehabilitation.
Current Volunteer Activities: I am currently involved with the Charleston Animal Society, Berkeley County Paws, and Paws for a Cause.
What is your most memorable volunteer experience? My most memorable moment is from when I was a sophomore in high school. I was in a volunteer organization called the Interact Club. Through the fundraising done by us in this club and the Rotary Club, we were able to have a tumor removed from a six month old baby's brain.
What are you most proud of contributing to your organizations? I am most proud of giving these animals a second chance at a better life. I am also proud to see the look on the adopters' faces when they find their perfect dog.
What do you enjoy most about community service: The best thing that comes from doing community service is knowing that you're doing something good for someone else to help them.
How do you think your friends and family would describe you? I have been described as caring and spontaneous. I was told that I am a go-getter and dedicated to achieving my goals.
What would you tell someone who is thinking about volunteering? Just do it. Why not? The greatest gift you can give is to dedicate your time to bettering the community.
What are your plans after graduation? My dream is to work with the World Wildlife Fund. I may join the Peace Corps.
