As I've grown older, I have become more interested in helping others and exploring new places. So far in 2016, I have been to Paris, London, and Scotland. I also joined and raised over $100 for my school’s Relay for Life team; as a team we raised almost $10,000! I come from a very large family. I am the oldest of nine kids, and have always beengood working with children. I have also been volunteering at a preschool in Coral Gables for a little over four years.
In July, I volunteered in Haiti at an orphanage, Kominote Ti Fanmi Nou, for their 2016 Art Day Celebration event. Art Day Celebration is a program that empowers underprivileged and vulnerable children in Haiti specifically through art. It was a wonderful experience - I absolutely loved the kids and I definitely wanted to go back. Volunteering in Haiti felt like the perfect opportunity to travel a little more while helping others, and I especially enjoy working with the kids since it’s already natural caring for my siblings.
After Art Day Celebration, I knew I wanted to become a part of The Next Generation Ambassador program! As a Next Generation Ambassador, my goal is to raise $1,000 by January 1st, 2017. This will help to provide the children with transportation to get to school, to get a better roof over their heads, and/or to support Art Day Celebration 2017. Can you imagine impacting another person’s life in a more significant way?
