Community Service

Community Service is something that often is overlooked. However, as I got older I began to realize its value. Education is not only about bettering yourself, but also helping out the community as a whole. For now, my community is Baruch and as a scholar I feel like it is my responsibility to be a leader and lead by example when it comes to community service. We are required to do some community service but I think that this will teach us to go on in our lives and influence the community for our own satisfaction.

One of my favorite quotes is by Will Smith. He said “I want to do good. I want the world to be better because I was here.” I truly believe that and I think that we should make the most out of our lives and leave some sort of unique mark. I’ve looked at community service as a chore before but I began to understand its value. It not only serves others but it also makes you feel good about doing a good deed. It can also help you realize your hidden potential or something you didn’t know about yourself. The honors program tries to get us to begin to serve the community and be an example for those who don’t have to do this. Courtesy and kindness is contagious and I plan on being a good citizen and help the community after my time in Baruch as well.
