I just really love doing it. I’ve always done it through high school. Before, I always used to be required to do it, but now that I’m in college I feel like I want a really well-rounded, balanced life, so I feel like volunteering kind of helps with that.

I just think I’ve been fortunate to be blessed myself and receive a lot of scholarships myself to attend K-State, so I think just kind of the desire to pass on what I’ve been blessed with. It’s inspiring to see so many people at K-State want to serve and that’s what motivates me to serve as well. I think just helping others out that really need help.

I think it’s really important to help your community, because if you don’t participate in your community then you don’t get to see the community as a whole, you only see the parts that you participate in. And so I think it’s really important to see things as a whole.

Just knowing that if I have the opportunity and the funds to volunteer then I can make somebody else better off.
