I hope all is well. Things have been going pretty well for me, been busy with work and a lot of other stuff!
This past November, I applied to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay to become a Big Brother. What the program does is pair “Bigs” and “Littles” with each other, who are usually young adults (like me!) with students at local elementary schools. After a the application process and the holidays, I was lucky enough to get a Little! I visit him during his lunch break and we just hang out, talk, and play some games– things friends would do.
I’m really excited to begin this experience. Being part of BBBS helps me in a ton of ways. It gives me something meaningful to partake in during my free time at school and it allows me to widen my perspective and share the blessings I have. It’s been helping me gain an understanding of the community I’m a part of and how I can impact it as well. I definitely will be continuing in my volunteering work in Boston as I look for more ways to help in the community. It’s a great way to meet people as well and really feel at home.
On a more local Wentworth-level, I’m officially a Student Admission Ambassador! This means that I’ll be helping out with Accepted Students Day and giving tours around campus. Honestly, I’m really excited to start and be able to share my enthusiasm about my experience at school. I’m very lucky to have gotten the position and hope that I’ll be able to help prospective students with their decision in choosing a school using my experiences as a transfer student.
It’s also been a great way to meet more of my fellow classmates, as I’ve already met a ton of people I haven’t known before. It’s also nice knowing they have a lot of school spirit too!
Well, that’s all for now! Next time I’m probably going to discuss the decision of choosing a college, and share my story of coming to Wentworth. But for now, it’s almost Spring Break!
