Tell Us Your Good Deed: 

At my University we have a club dedicated to habitat for humanity and on spring break, 11 students including myself were selected to go down to New Orleans to volunteer and help build a home for two well deserving families.

Why are you participating?: 

I believe labels are often used against us and lead to a lot of intolerance and hate. Any moment where I am able to show that labels are damaging and that they are only used to oversimplify humans I'm willing. Though labels are just words, they somehow hold a large amount of power. This power is fueled by us and the only way to render labels as meaningless is if we as a society collectively become aware that there is more to a human than their label. If we do, we would start seeing our neighbors as they are, and allow ourselves to interact without pre-conceived ideas about them.
