Being the difference you want to make.

 "Getting up early for my teaching internship and being at my best gave me a sense of responsibility... Teaching is my calling and I feel I should be in a classroom all the time, doing something related to that...My family does not have a lot of money. My parent always valued education. I would not be here if I didn't have great teachers pushing me and encouraging me... My favorite part in volunteering was working one on one with Konstantinos. He becomes very distracted in class and benefits from individual attention.
