Volunteering in Nashville with the Nashville Rescue Mission was a ton of fun. Courses and clubs at APSU has made me more outgoing. I know I was not this talkative, especially to strangers, in high school. While volunteering my mission was to connect with people. I loved being able to talk openly with everyone, and get to know people’s stories and the skills I have learned at APSU made this possible.
This experience showed me more about the volunteer organizations nearby. Now I will look to volunteer there when I am in Nashville. I learned more about the struggles people have especially with addiction. One woman in particular gave me a new perspective on addiction and how to help someone deal with it.
