I worked for a four-hour shift at Ohio State’s Healthy Community Day 2018. After being assigned to work in the children’s activity area, the other volunteers and I helped organize the people who were working in the activity area, like the clowns who made balloon animals and the face painters. Once people started arriving, we directed the flow of foot traffic through the activity area and made sure that the lines for activities moved quickly. After spending time on the concourse, two of us were asked to go to the main floor and direct people to the screenings on the concourse. Directing people to screenings helped make sure that people were utilizing the free resources available to him and potentially helped people catch health issues before they became life-threatening. After our volunteer shift, a fellow volunteer and I ran into Brutus and took a picture with him to celebrate the contribution we made to the improvement of public health.
Madi Hart is a freshman at The Ohio State University who intends to major in Integrated Language Arts Education. Ever since she was a little girl, she aspired to be a teacher but was unsure what subject she wanted to teach until she worked at her high school’s writing center during her senior year. As a peer tutor, she had the opportunity to see the writing of her peers improve drastically. She enjoyed tutoring so much that she began doing it outside of the writing center as well, marketing her one-on-one writing tutoring service on several community forums. Watching students find their voices and understand the power of words was so enjoyable for Madi that she decided to pursue a degree that would allow her to find a job teaching high-school level Language Arts. In her free time, Madi is involved in the Advocates for Communities and Education Scholars Program at OSU. Additionally, she is a puppy sitter for Guiding Eyes for the Blind, and she is a mentor for Pen PALS OSU, which is an organization that provides role models and the improvement of literacy for students enrolled in the Columbus City School District.
