Youth Forward Scholarship 2017 – My Life When Volunteering

I volunteer at a
Sunday school for my local church. On average, I volunteer for about
an hour a week teaching children in one of the classrooms. It is my
duty to make sure that children go home to their families with new
knowledge every day and are taught proper morals that I know will be
good for them to have for the rest of their lives. As a volunteer,
nothing makes me happier than seeing the children grow and learn
more, becoming well-educated adults in their society. From
volunteering, I have learned that each and every child is very
different from one another and is special in their own individual
way. My ultimate goal in my career path is to become a dermatologist.
This goal can align with my current volunteer focus because, as a
dermatologist, I can help to improve people’s lives and help them
to think better about themselves in their day-to-day lives. In the
future, I see myself as a very selfless and kind person, caring for
those around me, including those whom I don’t even know. I try my
best to promote kindness and honesty to those around me and to
portray those actions as best as I can, even when I’m not in the best
of moods. I would hope that if I were to come back and see these same
children in ten or twenty years that I would be able to see my impact
on their lives. I would be overjoyed to know that I had helped them
in a way that can greatly impact their lives and their beliefs in our
religion, and that I could be the one to help improve the way that
they act and the way that they see our religious beliefs for the
entirety of their lives.
