Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." My parents gave me a key chain with this quote by Eleanor Roosevelt on it in second grade, and they have been mine to live by since. Thinking and living outside of the box to try and be me while helping others is how I achieve my dream of being a woman for and with others. In the summer of 2011, I had to the chance to go to Israel and Palestine (West Bank). As I walked through the narrow, rubble covered streets of a Palestinian refugee camp in the West Bank, I was suddenly surrounded by the most happy, vibrant, and curious little kids who all wanted to see me, and ended up sitting on the ground playing and talking until it was time to leave. I realized I was, and am, living my dream in little ways.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I served as a teenage role model and leader to the young ladies of my community. Twice a week I would go to work and be ambushed by many smiles and girls. It was the greatest feeling to leave work and see the smiles that I'd put on the girls faces and the smile that they'd put on mine. Now, I'm a junior at Salem State University, and I make certain to continue to work with others as I'm a tour guide and aid prospective students and families in making the decision as to where they will spend their college careers.
Why are you participating?: 

Because in the world, labels shouldn't mean anything. This project is a great way for people to label themselves in a way that expresses who they truly are... it's 100% acceptable to be yourself!

Marlborough, MA

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I love to help my family especially my little sister. She is deaf-blind. I like to help people. My fondest memory is helping another little boy learn to climb up the slides at the playground. I held his hand and told him where to put his feet. When he got to the top all the parents at the playground cheered. I was so happy that I could help him.
Why are you participating?: 

My mom says that this is a good way to help people and my sister. My sister is 5. She is deaf-blind and she can't walk yet. Sometimes people look at her funny. Mom says that is because they don't know her and are afraid of what they don't know. I think that is silly.
