I stand for togetherness. I believe that everyone in the community should prioritize helping one another. I wasn’t one to normally go out of my way to volunteer but due to the pandemic, I began to take initiative. I saw the opportunity to help the people and more importantly saw the happiness it brought to them. Volunteering brings togetherness to our community. The power we hold when we’re united has no limit and we can truly make a difference in our country. Through a local organization in Seattle named Connect Volunteering, I was able to impact a diverse group of people. From hospital staff to restaurant workers to the homeless community, we, as a group, were able to make a difference. Without the togetherness and the mutual determination to help, our impact would be a lot less substantial.
