When I was seven years old, my parents gifted me a toy doctor's kit. It gave me a role to play that I took with such pride and responsibility. I used every opportunity I had to take care of my family members. Soon the pieces of my kit were becoming lost or broken. Without my key pieces that desire soon met its demise.The beginning of my junior year had been completely driven by the urge to get good grades, join some teams, and take full advantage of my high school years. Joining Family, Career and Community Leaders of America was entirely a spur-of-the-moment act. I never planned to open up this past love I had to only be completely consumed by it. I walked into FCCLA completely blind, not knowing why my school had it (because I honestly never heard of it), or what could it possibly do for a high school student. Little did I know it would change my life forever. Becoming a part of this team reminded me of the joy I get from helping people. Initially a member, I later evolved into the Vice President. My group and I participated in Angel Tree, attending elementary schools to talk with kids, boxing supplies for families in need, and fundraising at our school. It felt so full and enriching to help other people, and I had completely lost sight of that. It was selfless, and I hadn't felt that way in a long time. FCCLA gave me an oppourtunity to also learn about my peers in doing so taught me many skills it takes, to work together to aid and provide for others, something that my track team or mentor groups could not possibly teach me.FCCLA helped awaken that honest passion I have for helping others. In the future I plan to find a place in the health care field. I hope to impact people's lives, and aid in improving them to my fullest ability. It only took the involvement of a high school community service group to help find the key pieces to my doctor's kit.
