Right now, I volunteer with Pilgrim’s Hospice and Central Lion’s Recreation Centre. I get a lot out of volunteering: interact and socialize with others, it helps me feel like I’m part of a bigger community. Getting to know people makes Canada a better place and, when you volunteer, you get to meet a lot of different people. I meet many people from other cultures, we communicate and get comfortable together, and we develop relationships and friendships. If you’re a good listener, and if you care about people, you can do this role. It really becomes natural after a while.
