My father was an incredibly selfless person and I believe that’s where I got my volunteer spirit – doing for others without asking anything in return and thinking of others before yourself. My time with the Norwood Child and Resource Centre is a lot like gift giving; the fulfillment I get seeing someone’s face light up is so rewarding. I get such positive energy from it, and it enhances my desire to pay-it-forward. I hope my volunteering inspires others! Whether it be locally or nationally, I think volunteering can really help others learn what it’s like to give of yourself without expecting anything in return.
