My road in life took a while to figure out.
First I went to college and studied Business because I didn't know what I wanted to do.
Then I decided to join the Peace Corps because I knew I wanted to help people.
Then I started working at a museum as a volunteer coordinator.
Then I moved to Washington, DC and found a job with College Summit.

Students participate in fun activities where the volunteers guide them through the steps of not only applying for college, but also becoming leaders within their communities.
