I practice these skills everywhere I go. I have to be respectful everyone because in order to receive respect you must give respect. A positive trait I practice everyday is caring because I babysit my little sister every afternoon. Therefore,I can't be selfish and just think about my self I have to watch over her and make sure she is okay. Peacefulness I think is a natural trait that I have because I don't like to argue. I normally try to let everything pass and move on with life. In a community as big as Oakland everyone has to learn about citizenship. I learned about citizenship with school. It has to do with knowing how to co-operate with others in order to get a job done right and well. Empathy I practice with my parents because I help
I volunteered at Masonic Homes of California which is a senior living community. When I first started to volunteer I actually thought that my whole time would be spent just making copies and doing small miscellaneous tasks in the office; however, I was wrong to believe that. I did not just spend my time making copies, I got to do different tasks which made the time pass. By volunteering here I was able to meet new colleagues and I was able to network. The most important thing that I learned from my internship that I can use in daily life is to make sure that I get relevant experience in all fields that I am interested in pursuing. Without the experience it would be hard for me to accomplish what I am aiming for. The main connection I could say that I made is that I was able to realize
One time, when I was in El Salvador, my aunt had to go to a meeting with her husband. My grandma and my aunt work at a store inside the house. My aunt wanted someone to help my grandma work the store. no one wanted to help her out, so I volunteered to help her out. So my aunt left me and my grandma in charge of the store, so I went to the back because that’s where the store is at and helped my grandma sell some home necessities. (because that’s what we sell in there we also sell chips and food and stuff). My grandmas job was to get the money and my job was to get the stuff the people wanted. Working with my grandma was so fun cause she makes the funniest jokes and she's really nice
On December 2nd of 2015, my city of San Bernardino encountered a terrorist attack that took the lives of 14 innocent people and injured 22 at the Inland Regional Center. I can only imagine what it feels like to lose someone whose only intentions were to go to work. This devastated many families and took away their loved ones. Seeing the pain and heartbreak, I knew that there was something that needed to be done. After seeing the chaos go on in my city, I decided to volunteer at my local Salvation Army to do something good in the middle of all this negativity. I donated clothes my family no longer used, blankets, and even pillows for those who couldn't afford them. I also volunteered to serve lunch on the weekends. Seeing their faces knowing
Christian service is the service of a Christian, it is the action of helping and doing work for other people in the character of a servant. Which also can be understood serving other people willingly and cheerfully with all your spirit and soul. Christian service includes practical involvement in poor countries and help people who is suffering.
I have been serving in the Army for 18 years. I did four years in the Marines. I am currently working in Fort Drum as a Sergeant Major. My job is Infantry.
When I started Volunteering at a homeless shelter 10 years ago, I was working as a medical assistant at a clinic. After I had trained for some months at the shelter. I was asked to help with the half-way house part. This had been set up for young people who wanted to get off drugs and alcohol, and change their life around. I helped set up and run a full-time program with daily classes, activities, and community
I have always taken great pride in my ability to bring myself out of poverty and to become a well-rounded person. I have suffered through many obstacles along the way, and with great determination, I have been able to overcome them. I know that I have been fortunate and I never take that for granted. Friends and family are a great support system and I am blessed to have the best of both. I work very hard to instill strong beliefs into my children and their friends. It is very important to me that I give back to the community. Understanding social culture and economic provides and even greater sense of wanting to help those that need it. I volunteer through my work with Habitat for Humanity and the Houston Food Bank. My daughter also volunteers
Any previous experiences that I had working with children came from volunteering through Key Club in high school, the Extended Day Enrichment Program at J. J. Finley, and ReadingPals at United Way of North Central Florida. Some activities that I engaged in while volunteering includes designing and monitoring student activities; helping students with their homework or crafts; reading, re-reading, and discussing familiar books; and writing activities. Other experiences that I had came from babysitting for families and friends and interacting with the children in the Hmong community. These experiences consisted more of conversations and modeling social norms at events within the Hmong community.
I was born in Australia on January 12, 1999, however I have lived on the Hawaiian Islands since I was five and for most of my life. I have traveled back to Australia several times to visit family and even though I’m an Australian i do consider myself semi-Hawaiian in a sense. To give back to the islands I would love to help the next generation to have a childhood that is filled to the brim with Hawaiian Nature. One idea to give them this experience would be to go into Waipio Valley with the children from different schools in the Big island and explore the valley with them. Some activities while we are in the valley would be hiking, examining native plants, horse riding, swimming in rivers and the ocean, and then
This day was busy, but I was able to help out more by checking patients in and checking them out this time around. Felt a lot more comfortable with the system and interacting with the clients and their pets. This was my last day working in the front, I enjoyed working with Leonore and the rest of the staff in the front but, I am very excited to work in the back to get hands on experience working with the technician’s and the doctor’s.
I would be an outstanding student in Spelman College's faculty classes because I am hard worker. My work has always came first even when I had experienced a big transition in my life I didn't allow that to stop me from doing my work. My work was always a outlet for me to express myself and to show my teachers how I really think. For instance, in my English Composition Class we read a poem called "I Want A Wife by Judy Brady" then we read a book named "Fences by August Wilson", and one day we were in class discussing the poem in the book and it shocked my teacher when I made the connection between the two. I thought my teacher made us read "I want a wife" because in the book "Fences" the main character named Troy expected everything in that
Growing up in a very traditional Asian household, I was pushed every day to achieve any goal I sought out to accomplish. Whether it was playing piano, practicing the viola, or studying for school, my parents were always supportive with any goal I had in mind. One of the main reasons why I am who I am today is because where my parents originated from and their desire to follow the American Dream for not just them but my sister and I.
For my Make a Difference Project, I decided to donate 2 large boxes of unused toys to Goodwill. I also wanted to donate $50 to Riley Hospital. I exceeded my goal as I donated two boxes of gently used toys and a full desk set to Goodwill. I also met my goal to donate $50 to Riley Hospital. I earned the $50 by lawn mowing. Something I could have done differently was to maybe focus on one organization rather than two. This would have helped because I could have helped that one organization more. This inspires me to do more service projects because I would like to help the community. I really enjoyed doing my Make a Difference
I worked with the temples staff and organized a weekly soup kitchen to feed the less fortunate people around the area of South San Francisco and San Bruno. My tasks entailed washing dished, cleaning the mandir is there were enough people to help with the soup kitchen. Also serving food, cleaning the murtis, making the food and also going to help buy groceries to prepare the food, if needed. I volunteer at the mandir on the weekends along with my sister and my parents. This activity allows me to not only spend time with my family, but also give back to my community by preparing and serving food to the less fortunate. Additionally, in order to raise funds for the soup kitchen, as we say in hindi langar, I meet with the fundraising committee as
