Cerena's (Meaningful) Spring Break!
Organized by: Cerena Ermitanio
Hello! My name is Cerena and I plan to volunteer abroad in the Dominican Republic during my spring break from school. As an active volunteer in my local community, I believe in using my talents to positively impact the lives of others. I currently volunteer for my school district as an AP Ambassador and National Honor Society member, as well as the Houston Food Bank as a Student Hero. Volunteering abroad is something I've dreamed of doing for quite some time. I travel frequently with my family, taking every opportunity to learn first-hand about the cultures of other nations. However, I want to take my wanderlust and education one step further through lending a hand to those in need across the globe. While volunteering in the Dominican Republic, I will be working in rural and urban areas on sustainable projects from reforestation to the construction of schools using sustainable resources. I will also volunteer with children in Hatian resettlement villages, sharing my talents and becoming a role model to those who have limited exposure to the rest of the world. Any amount will help! Your money will not just benefit me, but also the people of Dominican Republic who will be impacted through the projects I will participate in.
