I have spent the past month sewing masks for my local hospital, as well as friends and family who are essential workers at grocery stores. I have enjoyed this service because it made me feel a little less helpless being stuck at home, and I learned a practical new skill: sewing!

It is a great opportunity to work with Martha's Table for the Maycroft Mini Market, and it is interesting to interact with clients sharing their experiences and different customers as they shop groceries. It was a bit overwhelming at first but I received much help from other community members and gradually became more confident to directly communicate with customers and improve the working efficiency.

Looking back, I couldn't have left with a bigger smile. Working with younger kids and doing service work are two of my favorite things to do and I am really glad that through our FYDP program we were encouraged to go out of our way look for such programs. At first I attended an orientation event and then met the 4th grader that I had to tutor for the day. From the start we had a great relationship that grew, both soccer fans, both loved playing some basketball with our friends, and through helping him with his work, I learned how to better express my point and provide more efficient guidance in an academic field that I was confident in. After this event, even though I was able to fully fulfill my services hours with my group, I want to return here and continue working with the latino student fund. Another personal highlight of mine was seeing the fact that we both (my student and I) live and are based in the US, however come from an international background, which gave us even more to bond over, sharing our experiences with one another.

This time, I spent most of my time tossing chicken in sauce, cleaning kale, and organizing. There were some new volunteers who I got to show around the nutrition lab, and the sense of familiarity I'm getting is nice to reflect on.
