Throughout high school, Lion’s Heart continually provided me with various opportunities to volunteer around my community. From donating soccer equipment, to less fortunate kids in rural Brazil, to packaging items to send to the Philippines, the work I have done through Lion’s Heart has certainly impacted many lives, including my own. Through community service, I was able to meet many different people in all sorts of professions. I also gained new insight on what it means to volunteer.
When I attend Rice University this fall, I hope to continue this trend of community service so that I could contribute to my community and keep on learning from it.
