Finding Unique Ways to Volunteer and Give Back
Fishline is a local food bank in Poulsbo, Washington. They operate a grocery store-style food bank, and a community garden which provides organically grown produce to the food bank. I am passionate about volunteering at Fishline, because as a child my family received food and support from their food bank, and I know first-hand that children have no chance of success, at school or elsewhere, without a full stomach. I am grateful for the people in my life who have invested in me and helped me get to where I am, and now I want to give back by helping people in my community to succeed -- to follow their dreams, and live up to their full potential, starting with a full stomach. Since September, I have volunteered at the grand opening of Fishline’s new food bank, and attended their Silent and Live Auction and annual food drive as a volunteer. I have also worked to spread awareness about the services Fishline provides to the community, by reaching out to local businesses to encourage their support of the organization.
I work as a enrolled agent at a local law firm, where I enjoy strategizing different ways to help people save money on their taxes.
I won a local bikini contest and when I went to thank the judges one of the judges was a beauty queen, she recommended that I sign up for a pageant. My passion for volunteering and giving back to my community fit in well with doing pageants.
I have volunteered in six different countries in Africa working in soup kitchens and even hiking bags of beans and rice over the mountain in Uganda to a tribe who's crops had failed.
