Why I Serve Statement:
My father, a Colombian immigrant, taught me the importance of respect and humility at an early age. I have had the opportunity to travel to Colombia a handful of times thus far in my life. I serve because I have seen poverty, hunger, and the conditions of intense pollution with my own eyes. I wish to bring my open-mind and experiences to the communities that I serve, to enlighten myself with new knowledge and positively impact the people around me through acts of service.
