service to the community

Community service has always been a key part of who I am. Since childhood, I have done my best to offer my time and labor to many important causes. It'd take too long to list them all here, but below I've mentioned a few of the more recent organizations I've had the honor of serving as a volunteer.

I still maintain a fundamental value I was raised to believe: judge a person by their deeds and not just their words. That's why I hope to never be satisfied as a community servant, because as long as suffering and injustice exist there will be a need for us to help one another.
