While volunteering, I checked in patients, helped organize charts, and worked as a receptionist. This allowed me to serve the underserved population and work with a diverse group of professionals. It was inspiring to volunteer at the clinic because I witnessed esteemed professionals sacrifice their time to volunteer at a free clinic in order to help the community flourish. This inspires me to follow in their footsteps when I become a physician. I volunteered at the community clinic my freshman year; unfortunately, I became extremely busy with course work that I had to stop. However, I have registered to volunteer starting August and I plan to continue working throughout my senior year.
Freshman year during my lunch period, I had decided to participate in technology squad to assist those unfamiliar with software applications such as PowerPoint, Microsoft Word, and Google Docs. Also I was responsible to assign laptops out to students who needed them. When I heard of EMT Club, I automatically joined because I wanted to learn more on what it takes to become an EMT. I handed out candy grams to raise money for the ambulance corps and got to listen to current medical technicians that provided an overview of their responsibilities. In addition I attended a first aid class and got certified, so I can lend a helping hand in an emergency. Outside of school in the Fair Lawn Jewish Center Religious School, I helped students learn the hebrew alphabet and planned activities that would keep them engaged.
Over the summers of high school I have been a volunteer at the Cedar Valley Humane Society. My duties as a volunteer included cleaning up cages, kennels, floors, and dishes, as well as comforting and walking the animals. I have loved animals for as long as I remember, so it was very satisfying to be able to help out these animals in need. My favorite part was seeing how much their days were made just by getting some care and affection. Furthermore, I have just recently started volunteering at the Mercy Hospital. I think volunteering at the hospital will help expand my knowledge of health career jobs and medical terminology. I plan to volunteer a large amount of my time to help out the patients and staff at
One of my extracurricular activities was volunteering at UPMC Memorial Hospital in York, PA during the 10th and 11th grade. I gave patients food and water, answered call bells, and comforted and transported patients. I volunteered for 4 hours a week, 15 weeks a year, and had a total of 120 volunteer hours. Volunteering at the hospital showed me what it takes to care for the sick and made me realize that I want to go into the medical
I have assisted with babysitting and being involved with leadership clubs, however, this past summer was the best voluntarily experience I have ever done. I volunteered at the San Fernando Recreation Park’s summer day camp for eight weeks. Not only was I being prepared to become a counselor, but I obtained skills there, such as patience and responsibility.
Billy was a hopeless creature with a face filled with such desolation that he brought out the humanity in people as they took pity on him. Whenever they walked past his spot on Sixth Avenue they made sure to drop him a coin or two and say a prayer, while ignoring every other penniless person down the street. Even those more unfortunate than him gave him money, one time, a homeless man approached him,
I still volunteer at the hospital every Thursday, I can’t imagine ever quitting, or leaving the children. I can’t. I love it there, I love knowing that I can actually make a difference in someone else’s day. I want to make a difference in this world, to help somebody have a chance of living their life in the best way
Welcome to Sandersville, Georgia. A quaint, little town nestled in Washington County with a population of under 6,000. Seated happily in the Bible Belt, there are more churches than gas stations in the Southern city. We pass the only gas station for miles on the corner of the main street as my family heads to my Aunt’s house. The drive from Atlanta to Sandersville was slower than molasses running up hill—at least according to my mother. Sara Armour is the epitome of the southern belle. A well-spoken lady, she was born in Atlanta, but raised in Milledgeville, GA following her parents’ divorce. With bright red lipstick and a blonde bob, she looks like the carbon copy of her older sisters in that musty kitchen
Taking a deep breath, Levi closed the door to his personal quarters. A loud sigh escaped his lips as he collapsed on his bed, staring at the ceiling. Although he was known for showing little to no emotion, Levi nearly broke down crying at least three times throughout the day. Levi had dealt with some pretty rough shit in his thirty years of life, but between the starving and constipation, absolutely nothing could have possibly prepared him for the suffering that would be brought to him by the latest Survey Corps Recruits.
“Hey there” John looked over his shoulder at the smiling face of his new coworker. John greeted him as hallway smiled back not wanting to talk since he had woken up at 5:00am that morning. He quickly dashed over to his office and switched on his computer. He thought about the nine years of intensive study that he had to go through. The loud ringing of his pager interrupted his thoughts. He answered a few nurses difficult questions about what medicines to prescribe what to do with a few difficult patients. He placed his phone down a little nervous wondering if he had just killed someone by prescribing the wrong medicine. He grabbed his clipboard, jacket and stethoscope and went to go meet his first patient. “Mrs. Anderson, how are

“Virginia, do not bring your crackers into my living room,” the old frail woman exclaims. “My son is coming over in an hour and I will not allow crumbs all over my couch.”
I awoke to a homeless man shouting at the bus driver, complaining that the bus tickets were too expensive. In the mirror, I could see the driver's exhausted and annoyed face looking at the man shouting before him. As the homeless man started to slowly become tired from yelling, the bus driver explained calmly once again that he couldn't do anything about the ticket prices and if he was really concerned, to take it to the town hall. The homeless man finally backed away in defeat, but not without glaring at the bus driver who politely smiled back at him.
Not so long ago during the years of the war lived a girl, with the most exquisite features. She lived in the town that had been devastated by the bombings of the enemy’s aircrafts, but to the eyes of the World the war had not destroyed her innocent mind on the contrary she would always help everyone and tried to bring joy to her fellow townspeople. She was beloved by her arrogant mother who would always put her daughter above the rest, and her old grandmother who was locked in a nursing home because at home she was not able to be taken care of as in a nursing home.
Was it really worth it, going this far. Shivering, Jonas, with Gabriel in his lap, gave the rusted sled a small push, feeling the frosted snow that laid lightly over the hill melt in his fingers. It was freezing, getting harder and harder to breathe, seeing his breath in front of him every time he exhaled. He took a glance at Gabriel as they went down, looking into the soft eyes with light tears dripping down his reddened cheeks. Jonas held onto Gabriel, as the sled went down swiftly over the white snow. He wished that he would have perceived a little more warmth from the Giver that would give him a little more strength. He and Gabriel were getting colder, making them more weak, with their hands freezing and their toes all numb. They were
