Why did you choose to volunteer at Potencia? 🔑
Learning a new language can be exciting but also challenging. As a previous English learner myself, I understand the many emotions and challenges that arise when trying to master a language that you encounter every day. Therefore, I decided to volunteer at Potencia to be part of the learner’s journey that I am very familiar with.
What did you learn from your tutoring experience? 💡
During the weekly tutoring sessions, while I taught English grammar, my student taught me about perseverance and patience. No matter how long the journey may be, I want to help as many newcomers as I can to learn the language that they face daily.
What is your goal after graduation? 📣
When I finish college, I want to continue assuming the role of a “teacher” and help in educating women and young girls in developing countries about their health.
