Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I spent 13 years in Girl Scouts so I've always been a volunteer and I've had my share of experiences, but my most recent would be the InterVarsity ServeUp trip in New Orleans, LA. A group of students went down there for a week to volunteer in rebuilding the community and hearing stories of those affected by Hurricane Katrina. I feel as though those people helped me more.
Why are you participating?: 

Because labels don't define a person. It just makes it easier for other people to "understand" if you're known by a label. I am me and my labels will not stop me from helping others or pursuing my dream of becoming a doctor.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I try to be as accepting as I can be to the people around me, even if they have hurt me in the past.
Why are you participating?: 

In high school labels mean everything, showing off who you are shouldn't be a big deal and people shouldn't have to worry about being judged for their labels.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I volunteered at a nursing home to dye Easter eggs with some of the residents to entertain and cheer them up for a little while.
Why are you participating?: 

Because if I never actually got to know my roommate and instead let my stereotypes continue to be what I thought of her, I never would have met one of my absolute best friends.
