Personal Statement

Personal Statement Yash Goyal While a student at Raritan Valley Community College, my education has been enhanced through my leadership and volunteer experiences. My participation in the College’s Service Learning program has intensified my curiosity about the world, especially in finding answers to the environmental challenges we all face. With that objective in mind, as a field volunteer I have tackled the issue of local forest degradation and have written newsletter articles on the international activism efforts for climate change. As a member of RVCC’s chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, I have presented to College administrators and staff about implementing initiatives to assist international, ESL, and other diverse groups of students with the obstacles they face on campus. Volunteering has not only provided me with the interpersonal and leadership skills essential in my future career, it also has encouraged me to support my community and positively impact the lives of others. The opportunities I pursue to serve the collective good have allowed me to grow as an individual, student, and global citizen. Yash Goyal Class of May 2022
