I really enjoyed working with Grassroots this spring. I went into sixth grade classrooms every Friday and taught the students about health.
Moved plants down to the classroom. Assisted with compost as well.
Volunteered with Lucky Dog while they hosted a puppy party at the Microsoft store in Tyson’s mall. I looked after the dogs while customers and employees played with them. Lucky Dog had a table set up with information about how to adopt a dog and donate to the organization.

As a former mentor, I was able to attend a current mentor meeting and provide feedback, insights, and advice from my experience. It was great to meet with the new mentors and try to help them solve in class issues as well as develop professionally. The GWSB mentor program provides great resources to first-year students
Bought and then delivered food to the colonial harvest drive. It reminded me of the canned food drive we had at my high school that was a really big deal and we all loved giving, especially at this time of year.
Amazing experience, loved being involved. AFSP is a wonderful and extremely powerful organization.
Worked with Athletes to play a unified kickball game. It was a fun way to connect with others and made me think of my cousin who also participates in special olympics in North Carolina.
I went with the women's soccer team to play kickball with the Special Olympics, which was a very fun and positive experience.
The GW women's soccer team participated in a kickball tournament with the Special Olympics Program. We played multiple games of kickball and had a semi- final and final game. At the end of the tournament the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place medals were handed out. The day was so much fun and I can't wait to participate in the event next year!
I volunteered at the special olympics kickball event that was put on by Meg. It was so fun and I am so glad that I was able to meet new people and play kickball at the same time!
GW Women's Soccer hosted the first annual Unified Kickball Event with various special olympics athletes from DC and Northern VA. Unfortunately, I was injured so I was not able to play with the athletes in the tournament but I cheered from the sidelines and walked with the teams to get lunch. It was so fun getting to meet all the athletes and learn a little bit about their lives. I could see that the event really meant a lot to each and every one of them. Megan did an amazing job setting up the whole tournament and I'm glad I got the opportunity to play a small role in the day. Go Special Olympics!
With the help of a coordinator from a Special Olympics I was able to plan this event. GW Women's Soccer hosted the first annual Unified Kickball Event with various special olympics athletes from DC and Northern VA. I got to the event early to help the coordinator set up the event and to make sure that all participants had the necessary paperwork. I helped with take down as well. As a team we wanted to host a Special Olympics Event so that we could help kick start the Inclusive Revolution and show that all athletes deserve to know the feeling that sports can bring them.
