I wanted to save the world, so I decided to start at home. I am a 21 year old college student currently attending McNeese State University in Lake Charles, Louisiana. I play tennis for McNeese and I am pursuing a degree in Business Management. My idea [for today any way] is to attend physical therapy school and work with handicapped children.
I find no greater joy in life than volunteering.
This next year will be my third year to be a counselor at Camp New Directions and I couldn't be more excited about this. Camp has changed my life and the lives of each and every kid that has had the privilege to attend camp. We give the kids skills to help them cope with the stresses they face and help them see that they have options in life. Our theme for camp this year was NOW. We taught the kids to live in the now and only focus on the present. We used the song "This is my now" by Jordin Sparks to help us. We learned the sign language to the song and taught our kiddos as well. We used slogans from the song such as: More than my yesterdays, Breathing in the moment, Somewhere deep inside, and courage like never before.
Coming in a close second to volunteering is my love of travelling. I've been very fortunate to travel around the world playing tennis. I've seen exciting places such as England, Scotland, Holland, Germany, France, Switzerland, Italy, Russia and Canada. Travelling to all these fantastic places has opened my eyes to my fortune and others' needs. I want to better the lives of every person I meet. Camp is one way I can fufill that want.
I am one of two children, my identical twin sister, Claire, who showed me how to use Crowrdrise. Thanks, Claire. I am the proud owner of a drool-monster named Watson Lance Biggs, the English Mastiff.
