Experiences


A few years ago when I started volunteering at Scenic View, I hoped that my friendship would make a difference in the lives of the students. With that said, I never could have imagined what a difference they would make in mine. The students at Scenic View have taught me some of the most important lessons of my college career. They have taught me to never let my challenges keep me from being the person God wants me to become. They have taught me how to love others with a pure heart and how to be happy even amidst challenges. Every week I leave Scenic View filled with the joy of serving as well as with a desire to be better. There is no better place to experience what Y-Serve is all about!
