Perseverance, environmental and social awareness, planning, time management, organization, leadership and building relationships.
“From the last 2 years I have grown so much that I improved many skills like leadership and independence. As a person I became more caring and improved my listening skills. These qualities will help me accomplish my service project of helping others and bringing them some joy. An attribute about myself that can improve as a result of completing my service project would be time management and priorities.”
