Testimonials

Personally, it was an opportunity for me where I got to meet new people from diverse backgrounds. I’m truly blessed to work with a team where I could call my family. It boosted my confidence to speak up & present to the students. Unknowingly, I improved myself in many aspects as a volunteer. As for students, they showed improvement from the first to the last workshop. The students got the knowledge to become better people and proved that they could do it in the future. This project gave me many positive impacts, and look at me now, sharing my story with you all.

Speak Up

I learned that youth could have the power to make a change in the world. As we came together and volunteered to support a good cause, we learned more about global issues together and from each other. It proved that young people like us live for a purpose bigger than just ourselves by using our existing resources to create a more significant impact in society.

I’m grateful to have this fantastic opportunity to participate in this project. Throughout the project, I’ve sensed a lot of positive changes in my daily routine. I will continue to carry the principles I’ve learned in this project and educate those around me. American author Helen Keller once quoted, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” I believe we can make a positive difference in the world if everyone plays their role.
