Bio: 
Ever since I was a freshman in high school, community service has been an important part of my life. My high school has instilled the importance of what it truly means to improve the community and communities throughout the world. I've always enjoyed working with kids and helping improve their lives as much as possible. I've been researching multiple volunteer agencies for the summer of 2016 and I am very interested in this organization. Also, I am an incoming freshman this fall at the University of Kentucky and I am highly debating becoming a teacher and devoting a large amount of time to teaching underprivileged children throughout the world. I am hoping to find an opportunity next summer to solidify my thoughts of becoming a full-time teacher.
Volunteering Experience: 
I recently returned from volunteering in Quito, Ecuador at the Working Boys' Center. At the center, I was exposed to an array of underprivileged children that were unbelievably happy and grateful for all the volunteers the help out at the center. While I was there, I shadowed a "year long volunteer" who teaches 9th and 10th grade boys, which helped me determine that I want to go into education. As well as working in Quito, my senior year in high school, I spent 2 full weeks (80 hours) at an organization called Easter Seals working with adults with special needs. It was definitely an eye-opening experience for me because I was unaware that this program existed right in my community. The participants at Easter Seals and the children of Quito touched my heart and life in so many different ways that have resulted in my growing love for community service and my want to do more.
