Community service is not only about receiving hours to put on a resume, but it is something that can be done to guide others and make them feel better. An example of this is when I was part of the Martin Luther King day of service at Stockton University two years in a row. I sewed pillows and made pins to support the unfortunate; this was a great experience where I was able to make new friends and contribute to the society. Service is not only about being part of large organizations, but it is also about doing small deeds for others, like staying after school and contributing to a club even if it is not mandatory. I also was part of Project Green where I picked up garbage on the beach and planted marram grass.

To me, being Hispanic is something which I’m immensely proud of. My heritage and the history of great Hispanics before me inspire me to do better and try to make a difference in the world.

It’s this knowledge that drives me every day to make not only my parents proud, but to show the world that Hispanic people like me can make a difference for the better. When I was young my family could only afford to live in a small apartment infested with bugs which was our home for many years.

James was supposed to take care of the family after his stepfather died, but instead he dropped out of school, ran the streets, and picked up a bad habit of his stepfather’s- drinking.
