I am passionate about many activities one of which is helping others I have had many opportunities to assist others Over the summer I am able to spend a number of weeks at Sky Lake as a volunteer counselor Through volunteer counseling I provided elementary campers as well as special needs adults with a fun filled week at camp I like helping others because I feel that volunteer work builds a stronger community Coming from a strong Italian community I have learned that having pride in a strong community is something that is well worth in someones lifeThroughout my summers volunteer service I have learned how to be humble but also how to have confidence Volunteering has taught me a sense of independence which is an important character trait for any college student to have Patience being able to have an understanding of someone different than you and time management are also skills that I have acquired through my volunteer work I feel that through those experiences I am ready to become an active part of campus life Volunteer work within the community teaches young adults many life lessons that cannot be taught in the classroom The skills that are learned from volunteer work are not tangible but can be seen as positive attributes as the young adult moves into a college lifestyle I feel that by working with special needs adults of all ability levels as well as with elementary campers I am ready to embrace the type of experience I will receive when I live on campus as well as the type of education I will receive in the classroom By already having the background of working with special needs individuals I feel that I am able to start a special education field of study with a passion and interest for this program I also feel that I am prepared for an art education minor by having taken many art classes in high
