I liked the opportunity to grow and be part of an organization that is community driven. I felt fortunate to work with a hard working team that do their best to assist underserved families. This experience influenced me to study International Human Rights in college, and to this day, I have a strong heart for St. Francis because they are truly making the difference and uplifting the Dutchtown community in South St. Louis.
What I wish was different
Go out your bubble and volunteer! Find an organization that you feel strongly towards and take the step to connect with them and get involved in a new community. You may never know what it can lead you to until you give it a chance!
