WHY DID YOU BECOME A PART OF SCOPE?
I LOVE HELPING THOSE IN NEED! As an individual coming from a low-income community, I was able to witness the inequalities of our country and the lack of resources offered by the government which is why I believe we should volunteer our time to those who need us! We should educate ourselves about issues that we see in our communities, find a way to help, and go out there and make a difference. A great example of this is SCOPE, an organization that helps humans of all ages and of different backgrounds in different ways! SCOPE simply gave me hope that we can indeed make this world a better place by becoming the change we want to see in the world! Actions speak louder! I hear you SCOPE!
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO LEAD YOUR SPECIFIC PROGRAM?
The heartwarming experiences as a volunteer for Hablamos Juntos last year motivated me to want to lead the program. Simply, hearing from parents how thankful they were about the program and how helpful our classes of language development were, for both, them and their children with speech delay was amazing! Now with this opportunity, as a coordinator, I plan to continue making this program helpful and efficient for future bruins to lead!
I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up!
FUTURE GOALS AND ASPIRATIONS
