Why did you choose to do a year of AmeriCorps service?
I wanted to do a year service with AmeriCorps to learn more about non-profit organizations. I believe that AmeriCorps will be a great experience for me.
Favorite moment in the classroom so far?
My favorite moment in the classroom was when one 6th grader said that he wanted to be a 5th grade again so he can have food literacy classes for two more years.

One of the interesting fruits I tried was figs. I really like it.

I have become a little bit comfortable speaking in front of people. I also learned to voice my opinion.

I will continue to practice speaking and leading a large group during program session.
