During the break, I spent the time with my sister and helped her with her job and training. She is a physical trainer and I helped her with some number crunching and accounting, since that is my major, that she needed help with. The kids were really fun to be around and I even helped some of them with tutoring and advice for college. It was fun to be in my sister's world, while also connecting with some bright high school students.
Got to welcome students visiting from all over Texas to our university!
Volunteered with the Gates Millennium Scholars at Marathon Kids. We helped kids get ready for their lap around the UT Track and encouraged them.
My fellow Gates scholars and I helped welcome buses attending UT for explore UT.
For this event, my fellow Gates Scholars and I visited Crockett High School to encourage high school juniors and seniors to apply for The Gates Millennium Scholarship.
Several Gates scholars, including myself, visited Del Valle High School to spread the word and encourage students to appy to the Gates Millennium Scholarship.
I went trick-or-treating with students from Project Volunteer to collect canned goods for the Austin Food Bank.
I worked with UTPD during an event put on by Jester to demonstrate the effects that drinking can have on you. We set up a corn-hole game and let them try it without the beer goggles and then let them try it with the beer goggles to show how impaired you can get from drinking.
