I give back to my community by volunteering with a number of organizations: to eliminate global poverty and to feed the less fortunate are a couple of ways. I feel that giving back empowers me. I appreciate the respect and satisfaction I get from it. Volunteering has helped me grow as an individual. I am more confident, I relate to others better, and I’m making more friends! Volunteering makes Canada a better place by helping us all look out for one another, and lending a helping hand when you see it is required!
