Why I Serve Statement:
For so long I have been told that the best thing you can do for someone is to simply be there. The ability to serve others exemplifies a degree of love and humility that material objects can’t. As a student, it is so easy to get caught up in our studies and ignore some of the events that are going on in communities around the world. I serve because I have been served and giving back can mean everything to a community. Although I am not from New Orleans, I think it is important to be absorbed in a community and understand their wants and needs. The root of community is unity and in order for us to come together, we need to understand what it means to truly serve each other.
