By graduation, every student knew each other and felt connected as Keller graduates. Due to a small student-to-teacher ratio, we were able to bond with our teachers. Many of our teachers continue to serve as our mentors. Our schools also taught us the important of service to our community, enhancing Keller’s already communal feel. From the age of 14, I participated in enhancement projects at my high school and began volunteering for the City of Keller, feeling further connected to the city.
The friendly competition that the event creates is what allows us to be able to donate thousands of canned goods to our local food pantry on an annual basis. Our activities incite fun competition and a sense of accomplishment for our members and students affiliated with us. This provides for us a very comfortable environment in which students can be themselves and do what they love. Our Student Council, aside from offering our own physical service to our school and community, also helps other organizations with their events. We are the go-to group in the building.
If I was required to determine just one theme that has been exhibited and exemplified throughout my entire undergraduate career at the University of South Carolina, I would be able to say that it would be community. From my coursework, to the community service that I have been a part of, to the research that I have conducted, I have had a concentrated interest in aiding the Carolina, the South Carolina, and the national and global community when I can. Over the four years that I have been here my dedication to my community has transformed, drastically in certain ways. In the beginning I gave swaths of my time to taking part in volunteer projects across Columbia and the state, but over time and through my experiences I came to the realization
While being an intern at Christian Appalachian Project (CAP), I have had hands on experience writing press releases, being able to pitch a story, create images on Canva to be used on the Instagram page, and being a part of meetings that discuss detailed images of the Spring/Summer issue of the Mt. Spirit Magazine. (CAP) has shown me that even little detail matters even if it means changing the words “poor people” to “people in need” makes a big differences when describing the region of Appalachia. I think that the biggest event that resonates with me the most is that (CAP) helps people in need by having repairs done to their home, having a hunger walk, accepting kids into their week long summer program, having a food pantry and providing clothing.
During my high school career I have made a consistent effort to stay involved in both my school and community. Through clubs such as Key Club, National Art Honor Society, and National Honor Society I’ve been able to help out locally and globally in an abundance of ways. In Key club and NHS I am able to volunteer in traditional ways, but National Arts Honors Society allows me to contribute to my community and school in a creative way that stimulates people 's minds through art. Due to these activities having a significant impact on my life my future career options are based around what I have learned from them. I plan to attend college to study art within the marketing/communications field in the upcoming years.

The company also produces several online and television magazine programs aimed at the outdoor enthusiast (“Our History”,
During my time with the club I often met with Kiwanis (A organization of volunteers), soon I learned that Kiwanis created The Key club to give high school students an opportunity to serve their community. I also uncovered that The Georgia Institute of Technology also enjoys a Kiwanis club. In terms of service I believe that through community service, I may make a positive contribution to Georgia Tech upon arrival. I am very excited to join Kiwanis in college. I have always served locally, but I am exuberant to assist broader
The agency’s advisory board labeled the event as a success. They even made a profit from the event, and decided to make it an annual event. Another community event I helped set up at was the Burrell Slaters Alumni Banquet, in which I worked alongside the clients at too. I was also privileged to join the team on home visits, juvenile court visits, DHR QA meetings, and monthly evaluations. Assigned assignments included working on a scrapbook, filing papers, office work, leading group sessions, walking clients to and from class, and everyday interaction with clients.
I was already in a scholarship program that requires a lot of volunteer hours, but I was mainly spending them elsewhere. Chi Omega not only gives me the opportunity to take part in activities on campus, but also helps me gain experience in helping plan events. Although all of the required events are somewhat daunting, I have so much enjoyed the busy whirlwind of this semester with my sisters. Also, getting involved with my community has been such a rewarding process. Whether it was volunteering at Abba’s Tables or helping with Make-A-Wish, my heart is full from giving back with my fellow Chi
We held events such as Asian Heritage Month and Black History Month. Throughout these clubs, my team and I held many different events where I gathered a lot of valuable lessons. The Me to We club and I had held a fundraiser at our school to sell Rafikis and all the proceeds went to the We organization. The social justice club and I held many assemblies where I got a chance to speak in front of the whole school on things I was passionate about such as getting aboriginals the right of proper education and the "We Are Silent" movement. I will bring my past experiences of holding assemblies, fund raisers, festivals and such other things to raise awareness to John Fraser and help out in any which way I can.
It has given me self-confidence. Beyond Upward Bound’s Saturday’s classes, SAT Prep, or summer courses, there were casual text messages from both supporters, venting calls, especially from me, and inspirations that were effortlessly passed down to students. It was these concealed actions of Ms. Amber and Ms. Shesheena that kept me motivated and installed a breath of confidence, which allowed me to not only hope, but act towards future endeavors. Understanding and obtaining self-confidence allowed me to step outside of my comfort as I selected where to attend college. With such a confident selection, new experiences, knowledge, stress, most importantly, success are open that were essentially closed for me and so many others.
In high school, I was involved in the National Honor Society allowing me to serve my community on a regular basis. We participated in everything from picking up trash on the side of the road to raising money to support our local library. During college, I have been able to volunteer and participate in student-led research programs. I also enjoy getting to volunteer my time at my local elementary school as a teaching assistant. However, my favorite volunteering experience was getting to be a “Buddy for Special Olympics”.
I have done many things with N.H.S, one example of my service with N.H.S is serving in the local veterans home. This past year our N.H.S. has adopted the Veterans home in my community. I have gone to the Veterans home and helped the men and women who fought for our country just by small and simple acts of bringing them a nicely decorated handmade card, I have brightened someone 's
Being able to work with both children and adults has allowed me to broaden my view of what the field of speech language pathology will consist of. During my freshman year, in the spring semester of 2014, I was able to volunteer in Marquette’s clinic and take data for an SLP graduate student who was working with an adult with an intellectual disability. This experience allowed me to broaden my basic knowledge of the field of speech-language pathology. Also this past fall semester of 2016, I was able to work with an SLP graduate student in Marquette’s clinic, where we provided therapy to a preschool-aged client. We worked together in creating activities to target his speech language disorder, using both hybrid and clinician-directed approaches throughout the semester.
