VISTA

"When I start to feel overwhelmed with how much I have to get done in a given day, I change my perspective and think of how lucky I am to be given this opportunity to independently run a program. I remember that after my year of service is complete, it will take a while to climb my way up the nonprofit ladder and be given the freedom to make as many choices for a program as I have this year."
"The biggest success I have had so far is simply getting to know the students. I feel that a lot of the time, it is easy to focus on numbers, rather than the individuals being helped."
"Give to the max day is coming so we are excited about that. In the next couple of weeks we will know if we will receive a couple of grants we want, and next week we have a fundraiser at the Pizza Ranch for the high school Cultures United Club."
"With VISTA I was able to find a position that is related to a cause I care about, and I’m happy that I get to be a part of that each day."
"I am proud to say that I have learned more about Eden Prairie than I ever believed possible. It has been such an incredible opportunity to have time to dig into the community struggles and strengths."
