Why do you volunteer?
I volunteer because it is a way to give back to my community, it is a way I can be involved. It is also an amazing way to meet others. When I volunteer I associate with many people and this expands my networks and helps me to learn more about others and the world around me.
Why do you volunteer with the YMCA specifically?
I volunteer with the YMCA specifically because it is such a great organization. The organization does many good things for many different people and again, is a great organization. Due to this it is my pleasure to be volunteering under the Y.
What is your favorite thing about volunteering?
My favorite thing about volunteering is meeting people. I meet so many others that inspire and change me. The people I meet may be older, younger or different from me but when I volunteer I can associate with others on an equal level.
What is your YMCA story? What brought you here?
My story is all sorts of funny. What happened was one day I was sitting at my laptop and I wanted to tutor people, so I went online and searched up YMCA tutoring. I found the tutoring signup and I just signed up online and here I am today, not very exciting but that’s what happened!
