Melissa has been volunteering since June 2016 and has donated 75 hours to Literacy Source as an ESOL tutor! She answered a few questions for us:
Where are you originally from?
Born and raised in Seattle!
Please share something of your life so far and what you would like to do in the future.
I'm currently a student right now and finishing up my prerequisites for nursing school.
Why did you choose to volunteer at LS?
I liked the different programs that LS offered students and volunteers. I thought it would be a great way to branch out and try something new.
What do you like about volunteering at LS?
The students at LS are so wonderful and eager to learn. It's great to be around students that challenge the way you think and are incredibly motivated especially since most work full time jobs and have children!
Any stories or highlights from volunteering at LS?
You meet so many different people. It can be difficult to choose a favorite story!
What might people not know about you?
Even though I love meeting new people and being surrounded by people, I am very shy. It's a very strange inner dichotomy to deal with.
Thank you Melissa for all your time and commitment to our learners.
