I serve at Quincy Asian Resources, Inc., and my favorite part about my host-site is the youth who attend the programs there. I’ve been able to build meaningful mentor-mentee relationships with certain students there, and I’m proud of the hard work and goals they’ve accomplished this year.
A typical day at my host-site starts with coming in and answering e-mails and then program planning till lunch. After lunch is when I start to prep for the afternoon when the students arrive for meetings. From then on my day is filled with meetings when my youth and I plan events, have check-ins, facilitate meetings for their peers, or sometimes, they come in just to hang out and ask me about life.
My greatest accomplishment within the Fellowship this year is being able to connect with so many intelligent youth with amazing and rich backgrounds. While it’s been occasionally stressful being the “Big Sister” to so many youth, it’s also been extremely rewarding to know that I’ve helped make a difference (however big or small) in someone’s life.
If I could be any famous athlete, I would be Tom Brady because I’d be GOAT, to the point where the league I play in is envious of it. 🙂
