Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I'm a volunteer tutor. I worked with both immigrants learning English and mentally disabled high school students. It's always a joy.
Why are you participating?: 

I'm participating because I want people to think about the stereotypes, and how they conflict, and how the same person can have different labels. For example, I walk fast, like a New Yorker, but I'm not stereotypically aloof with strangers.


Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
Good deeds can stem from holding a door to picking up trash. As a retired New York City science teacher I tried each day to bring excitement of learning to my students. Often this took great patience and empathy. I sincerely hope that I instilled possibilities for their future in their hearts and minds. A compliment can instill confidence. It is a very simple good deed with immense power.
Why are you participating?: 

I participated on a very hot day in Worcester, Massachusetts. I was with my six year old granddaughter and wanted her to not feel shy so I decided to jump right in when asked. The word evil was interesting. I wasn't sure what it was all about and was curious. What the hell!


Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
A group of friends and I were in Manhattan a year ago and we found a child who was walking alone through Central Park. We helped that child find her mother and told her not to ever leave her child alone because she could have easily been taken away by someone. Luckily, we were the ones who found her.

Why are you participating?: 

I enjoy getting involved in different events on Quinnipiac's campus and showing support for my school.
