One of the simplest ways that I gain satisfaction from life is by dedicating my time to a cause that I feel passionate about. Community service, in particular, offers numerous opportunities for me to utilize my talents to aid those in need of guidance and extra help. The people who help with these programs are fellow members of my church congregation, and they are constantly willing to discuss the merits of helping all living creatures. Instead of being a burden, I discovered that serving others is an enjoyable experience if I found programs which catered to my interests. Among my numerous commitments to community service, these programs impacted my character in a positive manner and allowed me to feel proud of my accomplishments. Throughout my time of service to the community, I had the opportunity to reinforce talents that I already possessed, and I even had the fortune to develop a new set of skills.
During my senior year of high school, I had the opportunity to become a Junior Ambassador for the Chamber of Commerce of Walker County. Being a Junior Ambassador for this organization was a great experience. It taught me how to be responsible, hardworking, and has prepared me to hopefully become a Bevill State Ambassador if I get the opportunity. Based on my experience as a Junior Ambassador, if I had the chance to change anything in Walker County, I would change the fact that there is not as much. The more a student is involved, the more invested and interested they will be. Therefore I think that the school should encourage engagement with activities, and their peers.
