Hi there! I'm a recent graduate I majored in the useless Media Communications and Philosophy [but hey, I loved it and it could of been worse - I didn't major in English or Art]
I'm a 23 year old who currently lives in the United Kingdom but I'm from New York and came to England to go to University.
My interests are travel, music, swimming, fashion, television, horseback riding, and of course [why I'm here] volunteer work.
oh and I love cats.
Since a young age I've been volunteering and all I've really wanted to do with my life is help others [except for a short stint in the 5th grade when I wanted to an astronaut] you don't get paid much for it and it probably wont fund my second dream, which is to own a closet full of Jimmy Choo's.
My younger brother was diagnosed with Autism when he was young. We're two years apart so it's something that's been a big part of my life. I'll never forget a boy who had a hard time growing up. I thought we were lucky living in our cozy homes tucked away in the suburbs of New Jersey meanwhile in the next town a young boy whose parents didn't care much for him would lock him in a room with only a mattress during his tantrums. My brother was lucky we understood his disability the best we could, and even though this happened more then years ago that's when I really started to feel that need to help others that couldn't help themselves.
I was a girl scout for eleven years [scouts honor] sure it was camping, bug juice, crafts - but there were the many times we helped our community.
I continued volunteering in high school and carried that out through University. A lot of my volunteer work has been working with the disabled but I've also swum for charities and been involved with environmental clubs, helping the elderly, working in animal shelters, and assisting with local community projects.
