[b]1.How did you find Givology and what made you want to join the organization?[/b]
I found Givology through the college and career center at my school, and one of the main reasons I wanted to join was because Givology’s mission one was that really stood out to me. As a tutor I support giving everybody a quality education, so I found Givology’s mission really meaningful. Another reason I wanted to join was flexibility. They give you the flexibility to do want you want and what you’re interested in and also, it’s easier to fit it into your schedule. I thought it was a great way to do what you want, do something meaningful, and still have it all work out in the end.
[b] 2. What does Givology's mission mean to you?/Why is Givology's mission important to you?[/b]
Givology’s mission to spread education around the world is meaningful because it can really have a great impact on kids. I know where I am from, whenever I go to India or even here, you can see the affect education has. It can be the difference between having to live on the streets or being able afford living in a house. I think education is important, so making sure that other people around the world have the opportunity to improve their lives is important to me.
[b]3. What do you hope to achieve off volunteering/interning with Givology?[/b]
I would definitely want more people to find out about this. I want to spread Givology’s mission to more people. At the same time, I also want to learn more about how to work with others and new technology.
[b]4. What is your advice for anyone thinking (unsure) about volunteering for Givology?[/b]
I would say joining Givology is great! They’re flexible and supportive about what you want to do. The higher ups are great about making sure you are doing something you want and that you have the time to do it. It’s a good internship because they try to make it easy for you.
[b]5. What gives you motivation everyday to volunteer?[/b]
My motiviation is to spread Givology’s mission to help, so that in the end that everything I do here can have an impact on student’s elsewhere, whether or not they know it’s me. I want it to have a real effect.
