I was lost.
I had no idea who I was or the person I wanted to be. All I knew was that I wanted to help people, try make a change in my community. Volunteering to me was a selfless act that I could do to help people and do my small part in my local community. You can always help people and when you volunteer you do it because of your love for it, you don't do it out of greed to make money. It's something that you want to do, not something you feel forced into doing. Volunteering is a way to escape from every day dull life and start making a difference. It opens you up to new opportunities and meeting new people.
A small step in taking you big places.
