How did you develop a passion for service?
I’ve always wanted to help people. Pretty cliche. As a kid my family and I always volunteered at different soup kitchens and other volunteer programs. When I went to college, I decided to get my Bachelor’s in Social Work to continue being able to help those who were less fortunate than I was. I’ve just always known inside that I wouldn’t feel fulfilled in life unless I was serving others.
