Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I feel that I have been privileged in life to have everything I needed. I strive to show my siblings to never take what they have for granted. Unfortunately, we are falling into a time with economic disparity, where people neglect to notice that economic challenges of others, unless they are trying to do volunteering or community service. Often, volunteering is strictly a structured opportunity allowing people to feel good about themselves. This unpopular view is hard to accept for most but this reality can be seen once the system of giving back is seen. There has been a few social experiments showing that people will only give if they feel that they are more fortunate than those who they are giving, yet they refuse to accept handouts if they feel above the donors socioeconomic status. In this manner, it is evident that there is still as stigma attached to receiving help when you may need it. I hope to allow people to see a bigger picture and what they can do to help move into a more understanding future.
Why are you participating?: 

I want to be part of the turnover of this generation; the accepting and uplifting transformation of a generation.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I have multiple good deeds that I perform daily. One of them is always being generous to my friends and giving freely to them and I think that's a good deed because being able to give and feel good about it is something very, very hard to do and so when someone is able to do it, it's highly appreciated. Another one is always sticking to myself, not letting anyone else's idea of how I should be make me who I am and I think that's a good deed because it's important to not be negatively influenced. A final good deed is lifting people up rather than bringing them down and I think that's a good deed because in society today, you don't get much of that so people's self-esteems just keep lowering and lowering.
Why are you participating?: 

I am participating because it's a way to share my labels with others and what I want them to know about me in just a matter of three labels. Also, it's important for people to label themselves with things that they feel good about or that they feel confident enough to share.
