I volunteer for the Edmonton Chinese Bilingual Education Association (ECBEA) at their various events throughout the year, including the Chinese New Year Celebration and the Mid-Autumn Festival. At these events, I help to run cultural games, sell merchandise, and do Chinese dance and Chinese drumming performances. I volunteer through my junior high school at open houses and other events, I help with the annual food bank campaign through my church, and I also volunteer my time to babysit for my own siblings as well as other families in the community.  I think it is important to share Chinese culture in Edmonton. When people volunteer they become more selfless and nicer, therefore making our local communities a better place.
