My name is Christian and I’m going to volunteer at the SC Cares wild animal refuge. I am an incoming sophomore at APSU and a Bachelor of Fine Arts major in Acting and Directing. Yep, a theater degree. My parents are shocked too.
I believe my major helps me with my community by giving me a strong sense of empathy. When I sense someone feeling down, I try to do my best to help them feel better. Whether it be by telling a joke, giving them a shoulder to cry on, or just listening. I have a soft spot for helping people that I see in need. And an even softer spot for animals, so I feel that being able to dedicate my time to help out the people at SC cares, while helping out animals too is just about the perfect way for me to spend a week.
I’m very excited to go and very grateful I’ve been given such an awesome opportunity.
