What are some of the programs and/or activities you would plan to get involved with on either campus, and what unique qualities will you bring to them?
Over the course of my high school years, the lack of involvement I had in my external community continues to cause me regret. This lead me to desire more opportunities to make an impact going forward, starting with my time spent at university. The volunteering programs offered at Emory would allow for me to contribute to the university's ongoing community engagements and have a direct impact on Atlanta neighborhoods. Having taken full-term leadership courses for the past six years I have gained a growing set of skills and passion for making a difference in the lives of others. These programs have taught me not only the value of partaking in volunteering initiatives, but also how necessary community outreach is for all students. Especially in terms of helping students think critically, not only in school, but also about the issues and injustices seen within our society. Having been focused so heavily on leadership, I have used this knowledge to help me determine the importance of young people's willing to assume an active role in bettering their community and choosing to be responsible citizens. My experience in leadership is an attribute that can benefit the community of students at Emory, and lead to further success in seeing our vision of a better community turn to action. I commend Emory for offering such extensive volunteer opportunities, and am eager to join and grow the community of students and faculty involved with these program in the future.
any suggestions or comments would be much appreciated :))
