Volunteering and being an active member in my community has been an important part of my life and has made me who I am today. For this reason, I believe I relate most to the value of service.

Just as my brothers involvement in the community was the start of my volunteering experience; my sister led me to my ultimate calling. My big sister has always been a role model and someone I have aspired to be like. She liked pink, so I liked pink; she went to a big university, so I always dreamed of going to one; she was in Pet Therapy, so it was no surprise I had an interest in Pet Therapy. Many people dread going to elderly homes and yet I would not want to be anywhere else. Nothing on this earth could ever compare to the feeling of being able to make someone’s day, giving someone hope to be able to fight a sickness and using man’s best friend to do it.

During the various activities I have participated in, I have gained confidence in myself and gained…
