Every year, ASDA and the Pre-Dental Club at The Ohio State University holds a Pre-Dent Day. In this event, I learned more about dental school, requirements, DAT tips, and was able to meet professors and current dental students. I was also able to go into the lab and learn how to do basic drilling skills and making impressions. It was a really cool experience.
My church hosts Vacation Bible School (VBS) every summer for all of the preschool, elementary, and middle school students. I have volunteered since I was in 7th grade, and have had many roles such as small group leader, creative arts leader, and science leader. This event lasts for 5 days, 3 hours each night.
-Monday through Wednesday
Every spring break, my youth group from St. Louis has a youth retreat. I attended as a student, and when I came to college, I became a counselor. I would lead worship, help set up, and have one-on-ones (discipling) a few girls.

On September 30, I volunteered with Dental School Interviews for the College of Dentistry of OSU. I helped candidates sign in, and then escorted them to their interview rooms. I also helped clean up the interview rooms afterwards, and put the papers/graded rubrics to folders for the Admissions Office to look at in the future. This was also a very cool event, as I got to experience a real dental school interview and the process. I also got to talk to prospective candidates and got to hear from the student panel more about school. This was 7am-2pm.
