Volunteering
As an Active Member, I dedicated time (~100 hours in one year) towards individuals with disabilities. My hours were divided up between "live hours" (e.g. reading aloud and scribing exams for a visually-impaired student) and fundraising events (e.g. the 2018 Tower Guard Shamrock 5K, which raised over $16,000 dollars).

As a Student Mentor, I met twice weekly with an elementary student to develop her skills in reading and writing. By the end of the program, I was ecstatic with her progress: she scored two levels higher on the post-test! Because of my assistance, the student will be able to transfer these skills to the classroom and have a higher chance of success in school.

Hobbies
I enjoy playing the piano, learning Spanish, reading books (I have so far read 3 books of my intended 30 to read this year!), and playing Animal Crossing on my Nintendo Switch. Outside of the house, I enjoy engaging in the community wherever possible, whether it is spending time in nature with neighbors or volunteering at a local organization to support those around me.
