"Junior Achievement is important to me because it has reminded me of how important service is. JA has allowed me to give back and make an impact in the lives of children. I grew up pretty poor and I still remember the volunteers that would come to my elementary school and donate their time and supplies to us. They inspired me to reach for greater heights and to achieve something in my life. That’s all I hope to do when I volunteer with Junior Achievement. I hope I can inspire at least one child to reach their true potential by spending time with them. I hope I can at least plant the seed, and give them something they can remember when they grow older and decide to pursue their goals."
