Personal Statement

My older siblings inspired me to volunteer while at Plymouth State, and my first semester I volunteered for a week-long Social Action Trip at a no kill farm and sanctuary called Gita Nagari. This changed my life. I wanted to lead with gratitude and the knowledge my actions directly impact my communities. I made the decision to put my education on hold during the pandemic; during this time, I struggled to feel connected with my community and searched for meaningful ways to spend my time. I spent Friday afternoons volunteering at our local animal shelter and fell in love with serving even more. I've returned to campus and continue to learn about gratitude, leadership and giving back through my leadership opportunities. I believe people gain incredibly valuable experiences through community service, while also changing perspectives for the better. As a Sustainability Studies major, I hope to make a positive impact on the environment. I am honored to have the opportunity to work with like-minded community partners and know I have so much to learn. We have significant work to do for the environment, but collectively in with the community, I believe we can continue to make change.
