I give back by volunteering and taking part in events that provide support for those who need it, such as food bank drives, blood donation, and shelter for the homeless. I began volunteering because I thought it looked good on my resume, but as time passed, I began to recognize that a community is made of its people. By having the privilege to give back, I not only get the opportunity to make someone else’s day better, I get to meet such a diverse group of people. Canadians are known for our respect for our diverse citizens. By volunteering, we get the chance to encourage the engagement of our citizens and positively influence the lives of other citizens.
