Making someone's day engenders a smile on my face.
My name is Ola Wenno and I am currently a sophomore majoring in Environmental Engineering in SMU.
In the past few years, I volunteered as a marathon helper and as a reading partner in public schools. I realized how volunteering gives me the opportunity to change other people's lives and in return, they change mine. Also, meeting people with a different mindset compels me to open my eyes to various perspectives. I am thankful as to how volunteering has shaped me to be grateful for the opportunities I am given. Hopefully, I am able to open a few doors of opportunity through my job as a volunteer.
