Volunteer Spotlight: Marine in Coastal Bend
After this experience, I cannot live or imagine my life without giving my time for others.
I volunteered for more than two months in Coastal Bend, Tx. I was working in Paris, but I felt that I needed to have more of an impact in the lives of others. I decided to quit my job and leave my city to come volunteer for All Hands and Hearts. I chose to come and rebuild homes because my grandfather, who passed away, built homes for a living. It was a way to connect with him and experience what he did for so long. I feel so proud of what I achieved in Texas, pushing myself to my physical and mental limits for one purpose: rebuilding homes and hopes for those in need. It was the best experience I’ve ever had, and I will for sure volunteer again. After this experience, I cannot live or imagine my life without giving my time for others.
