I volunteer regularly. I love giving back to my community – I think it’s important and meaningful. I’m kind of fond of the city as well! Volunteering improves my life by helping me understand people, it also helps showcase everything the city has to offer – festivals, community events, and things like that, it’s very fulfilling. I think volunteering improves Canada by helping others; it’s also part of our history, our tradition. When Europeans first arrived in this place, they likely wouldn’t have survived without the help of others – namely the indigenous community that was here long before us. So it’s something that is at the very base of what Canada is.
