WORDS TO LIVE BY

“Be happy with what you have, while working for what you want.” --Helen Keller

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Naranjo volunteers and coordinates projects that includes raising money to pay for tetanus shots for women in undeveloped countries. She also tutors children. Naranjo has created heart pillows for recovering cardiac patients in the hospital. She has also volunteered at Pregnancy Resource Center and the Weld Food Bank.

WHY IS COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT IMPORTANT?

“Community involvement is important because I feel that a community can only thrive and succeed if the people living in it, support it. No one should care more about the community than the people living in it. If I can help anyone in need, there is no reason for me not to help, because at any point I could be the one in need of a helping hand.”

IF I COULD IMPROVE THE WORLD, I WOULD?

“I would do my part by helping create equality for everyone. Everything is limitless when everyone has access to the same opportunities.”
