Fun Fact: I’m a firm believer of living for the moment and always challenging yourself to be outside your comfort zone and experience new things. I hope to live my life by this.
It is a hope of mine that as an international student at an American Institution I could make more people aware of the importance of volunteerism as I have learned over the past years. It would also be an experience to help the local underprivileged community that I am not familiar with and bring forth my experiences that could potentially help in some way. A dream of mine is also to combine my passion for travel with my commitment to volunteerism and hopefully travel to countries and cities of those in need and devote my time and resources to helping them.
