vic and vicki should have volunteered for vbs(Water ballons)
While here at Wayne State I have volunteered to build homes for Habitat for Humanity, volunteered at health/blood pressure screenings throughout the city, and volunteered at Children's Hospital of Michigan and at the Wayne County Family Shelter. Volunteering is something that I have done since high school, and it would have been easy to push it aside when I started college. However, while in the Honors Program at Ferris I was reminded of how important it is to help others, especially those less fortunate. Honors gave me the nudge and helped me to refine my vision; volunteerism is a very important part of my life.
Can I Claim Benefits If I Have Volunteered for Redundancy?
I evolved from a confident child, through a self conscious teen, into a woman who possesses strong communication abilities. In my community I have volunteered with Habitat for Humanity, Gods Love, National Honors Society, and teen council where I teach about positive relationships and health education. Through gay-straight alliance, envirothon, and speech and debate I have been a part of research, education, and communication to advance equal rights and tackle the effects of new policies on our community. I have spoken to congress officials in DC as a National Officer of Skills USA and attended board meetings for increased funding of education. I will continue to be involved no matter where I go. I believe in the value of education, diverse communities and societal enrichment. I am committed to continuing to evolve as a leader of the common good for the rest of my life by staying involved in the community and taking advantage of education. I have taken advantage of the education available to me by choosing AP and Honors courses, as well as many others to further develop my interests such as Drafting, Health Occupations, and Ceramics. I will be the first in my family to complete high school and pursue higher education. Though I come from a low income family, this is something that Im proud of. It gives me strength, character, perseverance and determination and it is something that Ive never let hold me back. I wouldnt be where I am today without the knowledge that sometimes I have must push myself beyond my own limits. I am applying for this scholarship because I want to take advantage of every second of the day, college is my next step in this journey through life, and this scholarship can help me get there.
