I have had many long- and short-term service engagements throughout my time at OSU. I regularly volunteer as an Honors Peer Mentor in Arts and Sciences (now Honors Lead Mentor) and as a Restful Nights volunteer at the James Cancer Hospital. I founded Kindness on the Carts, a service initiative benefitting the James, and regularly organize and perform service through it. Mid-length commitments I have made include organizing and participating in the campus wide Blanket-Making Drive collaboration between ResLife and MUNDO and a service-learning trip to New Orleans, where we performed community service around the city. Short-term engagements I have had include Community Commitment, volunteering at the Denman Undergraduate Research Forum, and acting as a host for A Day in the Life of a Buckeye. In the summer of 2015, I volunteered regularly at Global Gifts, a fair trade non-profit, and became a Peer Research Contact, which I will continue throughout my college career.
I plan to continue to engage in the community by continuing my current activities and participating in new ones. I will continue to run KindCarts for the James Hospital, as well as volunteer with Restful Nights. I also plan to continue serving as an Honors Peer Mentor, participate in service-learning trips and take advantage of one-time opportunities OSU provides for service.
