D: I will never forget seeing the smiles we gave to others is something worth more than 1 million bucks.

“Help others and give something back. I guarantee you will discover that while public service improves the lives and the world around you, its greatest reward is the enrichment and new meaning it will bring your own life.” - Arnold Schwarzenegger 
            For my service project, I participated in the veteran village in which I brought 2 dozen of my favorite cupcakes (Vanilla) for the veterans. Not only did me and my classmates bring dishes for the veterans, we also served the dishes to them which I personally think is more important than just dropping the food off because it shows the veterans that we really do care. Doing this service project was really a life changing experience for me, seeing my classmates myself included come together to give back was a beautiful experience. Going into this assignment at first, I felt it would be just another assignment but I was wrong, seeing the smiles that we brought to the veterans was something that I will remember for the rest of my life. I’ve always felt that giving back was very important but this project has shown me that giving back doesn’t mean just giving money. Giving a lending hand or just your time can make a huge difference.

My grandma is in the hospital and I have to go see her so excuse how short this is BUT I do want to say that it was an honor to have you as a professor Dr. Soldani, this class has opened my eyes more to the world around me. Not only that but you were very entertaining and always kept the class interesting, it felt more like a fun activity instead of class. Most importantly, I want to thank you for setting up this service project assignment it REALLY shows you care and I feel it is very important for young people like myself to understand the importance of giving back because personally that experience is something I will never forget seeing the smiles we gave to others is something worth more than 1 million bucks. Thank you.
