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.”
