Even though I lived in Rochester for the majority of the past two years, I feel like I've learned more about this city in the past week and a half than I have since I got here.
Working in challenged communities as a privileged individual has revealed a lot of prejudice and selfishness that I wasn't aware of within myself.
I personally enjoyed interacting with such a motivated and intellectually curious student. Helping another person learn and watching them work to overcome any disability is an enriching experience.
Many students look toward the future with plans for medical, law, or business school. But for others, a slightly different post-graduation route calls them to action: service.
Despite not being a traditional choice for recent grads, the field of service work provides a wealth of opportunities.
According to the National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement, 71% of eligible students are registered to vote, higher than the national average.
