“be the change you want to see in the world”, my mentor knocked some sense into me when I was deciding whether I should choose the option of giving back to the society.
from just loving the thought of giving back to the society to meeting my “in-crime associate” and doing multiple projects together, to becoming a mentor for chem classes, to finally settling in to the main committee for the service comm projects, I really enjoyed my journey as a whole, as an individual.
to me, OD is like a place where I could really sink in and seek comfort in, from the people in OD, from the community out there. while trying to give and grow from the community, there were other aspects of knowledge and skills I’ve been learning throughout, be it the planning stage, managing of projects or just bonding with the volunteers. I’ve learnt a lot, more than I expected.
