If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? I have been a mentor for CARE Days for the past 2 years and we put on a carnival and track meet for students with disabilities throughout the district every year. This event has made a huge impact on me as it has opened my eyes and allowed me to see that the disabilities the students have doesn’t define them as they have brought so much joy to my life and those around them.
