[color=#555555]My name is Jiin. I am a senior at Suzhou Singapore International School. I am currently living in China, but am originally from Korea. I am passionate about equality and rights. I also love animals, green tea, cafes, and playing soccer. [/color]

[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif][b]How did you find Givology and what made you want to join the organization?[/b][/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif]I found Givology through an online post that my friend shared. The post had details about Givology's philosophy, which I found to be very interesting. I decided to join Givology because I believe in their cause of making quality education accessible for everyone. I also appreciated how they made the donation process so transparent and available to everyone around the world.[/font]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif][b]What does Givology’s mission mean to you?/Why is Givology’s mission important to you?[/b][/font]
Their mission to give children all over the world access to quality education is very meaningful to me. I personally believe that education is one of the only ways for people to change their inborn circumstances and take the initiative to construct a better life for themselves. So I think giving education and allowing that chance for everyone is really important.
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif][b]What do you hope to achieve off volunteering/interning with Givology?[/b][/font]
[color=#555555]I hope by interning with Givology, I can spread more awareness of the organization in my own local community in China, and that I can help Givology reach more audiences. I also personally want to learn more about the structures and real workings of a social enterprise. [/color]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif][b]What is your advice to anyone thinking (unsure) about volunteering for Givology?[/b][/font]
[color=#555555]I would recommend anyone who is unsure to go for it, whether that's in the field on online. Interning with Givology allows you to think creatively about ways to promote a project and a business. I think it also allows you to problem-solve collaboratively. It's also very meaningful and creates a real impact for our global community. [/color]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif][b]What gives you motivation everyday to volunteer?[/b][/font]
[color=#555555]My motivation would be that everything I do, every small thing I do everyday, can have an impact on students elsewhere. It is very fulfilling to know that the small actions I take every day can have real and drastic impact on someone's life. [/color]
[font=OpenSansRegular, arial, sans-serif][b]What is your favorite cause on Givology and why?[/b][/font]
[color=#555555][url=https://www.givology.org/~socwomen1/]Educate 20 Vulnerable Children in DR Congo[/url] is one of my favorites because I know that the political and economic situations there are very unstable and there aren't many organizations like Givology reaching out to the DR Congo.
