Experiencing and learning about new things is important in life. At CREASION, I got opportunities to do so every day through various activities. I had the chance to be part of various kinds of programs such as Trash Tag Challenge, Empower Plus, Tree of the Year, Mental Health Sessions and so on. I worked under CREASION as a volunteer and developed a special interest in the area that the organization works most on which is ENVIRONMENT.
One of the best experiences for me was while volunteering in the program, “Tree of the Year 2019”. This was my first volunteering experience through which I learned many things such as making connections, managing time and budget effectively and so on. CREASION has made me realize that helping can be done through various ways and in addition to this it has changed me in a positive way. I am at all times ready to discover myself as well as help people around.
I have overcome my ignorance about important issues such as climate change which I am now more aware of and conscious about. With an informal environment, it is easier for volunteers to strike conversations and build a healthy relationship with our supervisors as well. I would like to point out that VFC is an intriguing idea as it is all about engaging young people by fostering a sense of volunteerism. In addition, we also have the opportunity to create our own programs which brings out the best of us. Through my involvement in CREASION and VFC, I gained experiences cleaning our surroundings to striking conversations with government officials. Because of this very organization, I have gained confidence and the ability to speak for the things that need to be addressed.
As stated by Dieter F. Uchtdorf, “As we lose ourselves in the service of others, we discover our own lives and our own happiness.” Working in this organization, I got to meet new people and found happiness in helping others. I realized that the sense of achievement after completing a program successfully is incomparable. I am very grateful for CREASION for helping me transform into the person that I am today. Lastly, I am indebted to CREASION for welcoming me and making me a part of this organization.
