Journal #2

Giving back to the community has always been something I’ve always believed in. For the past four years of my life, I have spent countless of hours working with different organization, countless of weekends participating in walks and workshops that help people in need. My job was to make sure everyone in my club were serving their community because they genuinely want to help and not because it would look good on their resume or give them credits. When I became a Baruch Scholar, I quickly realized that the Honors Program advocates a culture of service that is similar to the one I’ve been accustomed to in my club. Although not all of us are driven to do community service because of intrinsic satisfaction, it is always the first step that needs to be taken that always pushes people to continue their participation in volunteering. As Baruch Scholars, we areĀ  entitled to so many opportunities that many will not get the chance to experience. What this means is, we have more reasons to give back to the society and more reasons to help the people in need. It is not about what will look good for our resumes, but instead it’s about our duty as human beings that we should seriously consider.
