Volunteering Skills Helen Keller once said, “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or ever touched - they must be felt with the heart.” I have volunteered at the Pleasant Hill Lions Club for six years. My parents are members of the Lions Club so I usually help them with as many events as possible. I help them with the Soup Supper, Fishing Derby, the parade in Pleasant Hill, and I volunteer for other stuff outside of Lions Club like the Special Olympics or Meals from the Heartland. This club has shown me how to become a great leader in life. I help the Lions Club by volunteering to do anything that they need my help with.

Inspiring others to help others in need no matter who they are was a job she did well. She is certainly a hero of change because she helped many survive World War ll, almost 800 escaped because of her. Perhaps if more people were more like Corrie ten Boom then the world would be a more helpful place and everyone would be able to live a normal happy

Lights Camera Fashion is a charity based fashion show to raise money for St. Jude Research Hospital. Every penny earned by ticket sells, sponsorships, and donations was totaled up and donated to the hospital to help with patients. I have always known I wanted to have a career where I could help children in need but wasn’t sure on the exact occupation I wanted to take on in the future. That night I was introduced to something I never considered, helping children in need with cancer. When the massive check was written out and finalized all of the models went to
I started to recall all the evenings we would as a family drive downtown and pass out containers of meals to the homeless, the hour long weekend drives to a heavily populated hispanic city of Eustis to assist the less fortunate for five consecutive years and the nights my mom stayed up until my father arrived from work. My parents were the best role models and persistently encouraged me to reach beyond what they’ve accomplished and engrained in me the most valuable lesson that’ll never be taught in a classroom which is to care for those around you even when you need it most. I was given that which is has no price, never fades and is constant which is love. My upbringing has made me the independent person I am today and has guided my desire to help others through my interests in the medical field and
My Definition of a Hero A hero is “Any person admired for qualities or achievements and regarded as an ideal or model” (“Hero”). When someone hears the word ‘hero’, they most likely think of firefighters, police officers, or soldier. However, the person who comes to my mind when I think of a hero is my mother, Becky Harper. She goes above and beyond each day, displaying characteristics of a hero. My mother can brighten up anyone’s day simply with the beautiful smile that is always on her face.
(Jacobs, 2010) Tyra has also been on People's magazine 50 Most Beautiful People list several times. Tyra has also hosted several television shows including America's Top Model which even after 20 seasons still draws a large viewing audience. Tyra is just as persistent in her personal life. After failed bouts of fertility treatment, in January of this year Tyra welcomed her son, York Banks Asla, to the world via a surrogate. Tyra sympathizes with the many women that struggle with infertility issues saying " I gaze into the beautiful eyes of my son, I think about all the people who struggle with fertility or carrying a child and continue to pray for them every day.
When they showed the video in the morning announcements there were people sniffling in my class.” All donations gathered from the weeks leading up to the Terry Fox run by volunteers were directly given to the Terry Fox foundation, where 84 cents of every dollar goes toward funding cancer research. Over 700 000 000 $ worldwide has so far been raised, and every bit was helpful. So far there has been no cure for cancer, so this fight against cancer will continue even after these runs. It is a long road to take, but nonetheless a worthy one to follow. “I 've been running the Terry Fox runs outside of the school for awhile now, even bringing my son along with me since he could walk,” said Ms. Phan, an avid supporter of the run.
I then went to Ransom Middle School for sixth and eighth-grade because I had to be homeschooled again in seventh grade due to having a major surgery. I missed a lot of school growing up because of my cancer treatments and surgeries, but I never fell behind, and I always had teachers that looked out for me. For high school, I went to J.M. Tate High School, and graduated with highest honors. I loved school from kindergarten all the way through
When I was thirteen years old I took a trip to Itta Bena, MS to visit my grandmother, a local midwife who helped deliver 95% of the population there. On the first day of arrival we sat and talked about everything that she could possibly think of: growing up in the south, favorites foods, my grandfather but mostly we spoke about her career as a Midwife. She spoke with much passion about her career and her love for babies often saying “I love all babies… Black, blue, white or orange they all have a place in my heart”. Two years later I revisited the subject in my sophomore year child development class, though this time I began to learn the history of midwives and their tasks. Until the 20th century, when trained physicians and hospitals became the norm place of delivery, midwives provided most of the care for poor and rural women throughout the south.
She needed to find a new doctor because of moving, and after some research she found Dr. Choi. She smiles happily saying “The day I met Dr. Choi Changed my life.” He was the first doctor to go back to the beginning and rerun all new testes for her. “He is the only doctor that never stopped believing in me.” Dr. Choi is a functional doctor and a chiropractor. He started Stephanie on some natural remedies that help repair her stomach. All the years on medications had destroyed her stomach.
I competed in the HOSA district regional competition during my junior year and placed in the top five for my health career display. Subsequently, I went on to compete at the HOSA state competition, which showed me many of the possibilities available for a career in the field of healthcare. I have been a HOSA officer during both my junior and senior year. At HOSA annual leadership conferences, I have packed thousands of meals for Stop Hunger Now. These meals are sent to schools in impoverished countries, such as Haiti, thereby promoting education while reducing world hunger.
