The story I read about Michael S. Egan's life story on how he became a Horatio Alger is very inspiring to me. Like Egan, I am also a part of a military/ Navy program called the United States Sea Cadet Corps and I helped retired veterans with their food facilities, clothing, and the many opportunities they still have. Back in Florida, I helped kids with life threatening illnesses though out an organization called Give Kids the World. I learned many things with this experience such as that helping out a life in any shape or form matters. Together, we learn that we can help the community grow and achieve new heights.
