What does it mean to serve your community?

With the title “Baruch scholar” comes immense responsibility. In a sense, I feel we are representing the entire school. As Baruch scholars we must manage our time efficiently, perform community service, join clubs, & meet and connect with as many people as possible.

The Honors Program requires all Baruch Scholars to engage in some sort of community service. I look forward to serving my community through the program because it will allow me to give back to the community that has always been there for me. This project has also given me the opportunity to interact and develop stronger communications skills.

Currently I engage in some community service during my free time. I deliver food packages every Monday & Thursday night through an organization called SBH (Sephardic Bikur Holim). This community service has shaped me and I feel great after doing it! Hopefully I am able to derive the same sense of pleasure from our community service project, and connect with my peers along the way.

As for clubs, I have not joined any thus far. I am still adjusting to our school, and doing my best in each class is currently my top priority. Once I feel more comfortable juggling large amounts of work, I will undoubtedly join a club & give back to my community.
