I was helping many students prepare for the math staar test. I was helping with worksheets and building their understanding of mathematics.
It was a fulfilling opportunity to help tutor these children. I remember being in elementary and having older people come to tutor me after school and it felt wonderful being on the other side of the tutoring. I would most definitely do this again.
It was a great experience assisting in a curated art festival. I was never really exposed to how large art was in austin but this was a great first experience. I would definitely enjoy helping out again next year.
I assisted the TIPCO organization in their winter service event to help make gift bags for Austin's homeless community and writing letters for soldiers that were not going to be home during the holiday season. The opportunity was great and would most definitely do it again!
I assisted TIPCO at the 2015 Hope Fest at Reagan High school. It was such a humbling experience because I was stationed at the Blue Santa station. I loved this because I remembered of times that my family had to use these programs to give us a better holiday season. Being on the other side of this program felt so fulfilling to me.
Helped my ULN group get other it students ready for the thanksgiving break by handing out inspirational quotes and jokes.
Other ut students and i volunteered at the martin middle school Harvest fest. I helped with the rock-climbing wall and felt genuinely happy seeing these kids enjoy themselves while still trying their hardest to get to the top of the wall. I would definitely do it again.
