Community service not only had an immediate impact on my life but it also had a long-lasting impact. It was personal learning for me– to respect others; to be helpful and kind; understand people who are different; developing leadership skills, becoming more patient, and working together towards a common goal. I strongly believe that “To be successful in life it is important to serve the community”.

I am passionate about learning and strongly believe that the purpose of imparting education to the generation of today is to cherish the moment and to thrive.
