Through my community service, I have experienced many challenges as well as benefits. When I began my journey at Spring Hill College, one of the conditions of my generous scholarship was to participate in a community service for at least three hours a week every week. The Foley Center has hundreds of service-sites to choose from, but I narrowed down the decision-making by avoiding services that I simply had no interest in rather than choosing a simple one. My first year at Spring Hill, my service was teaching English as a Second Language to adults who were refugees or immigrants.
