My participation has positively contributed to the organization by being a role model to the younger members and serving as Treasurer..
I am a high school athlete, who plays basketball. With my position as a point guard, I would have to be vocal and be the leader of the team. I was a soft spoken person, who was nervous in front of a large crowd. I then realized that if I wanted to keep my position, I would have to show leadership characteristics. So I gained the leadership skills, overcame my personal challenges, and too.

My volunteering at North Texas Food Bank was inspiring, fun, and a great experience. When I arrived, I came in ready and willingness to contribute to society. I knew that the work I was going to put forth was going to be extremely beneficial to the less-fortunate people and to the society. The leader of our group, explained the different ways we could donate and how one dollar can make three meals. With the donation of my time, I would be able to help feed many people who have been faced with hunger issues. Our group began to box the canned goods, while another group taped the boxes. It was amazing how many young people, like myself, came together to make society better for others. The experience was great, I was able to help make over four hundred meals, just by boxing canned goods.
