I volunteered at Rocking Horse Rehab, a pediatric rehabilitation and family wellness center focused on equine assisted therapies known as Hippotherapy. There, I assisted with various approaches to rehabilitation, celebrated progress and reevaluated relapses, treating children with a wide range of medical conditions. One of the greatest joys in working with these children with special needs was observing the progress the horses could engender. Each relationship between child and horse is unique and acts as an impetus for success, motivating the child to work hard to achieve his goals. My time spent in this therapeutic environment was integral in further identifying my passion to help others.

One of my friends was devastated by the loss of her uncle. Our other friends didn't know how to react to it and didn't want to upset her further, so they pretended like nothing had ever happened. The other night, I was sitting with my friend and casually asked her how close she was to her uncle. She immediately started crying and told me everything on her mind. She thanked me for being the first person there for her during this difficult time.
Why are you participating?: 

I am participating in the No Evil Project because I want people to see that who I appear to be and who I really am are completely different. On the outside, I sometimes appear to be cold, mean, and tough.

In my free time I try to volunteer as much as possible. Whether it's at my alma mater, professional organizations, student fund raisers or charities, I try to give back as much as possible on many different levels.

A longtime volunteer and environmentalist, I am studying to become an Environmental Engineer so I can travel to underdeveloped countries with limited access to clean water to design purification and sanitation systems for them!
