Vinisha PS - Primary Short-listed Nominee - Social Volunteer Awards 2021
For me, I prefer my self as a companion than a superior while being volunteering. I wish to be a spark in everyone's mind, although I can touch them with the kindness of my activities. Thus, I believe my service will reflect the society for small or big things. My greatest strength is being adaptable to every situation and interpersonal. Being a learner is my motto. As a social engineer, I would like to reform the society with my services. I will be there for the young minds as a counsellor for their future. To be with the resourceful and hard-working young to the society.
VOLUNTEERING FOR ME
According to me "being a volunteer who expresses a willingness to undertake a service", You do not volunteer for the pursuit of a monetary prize or recognition. I understood that I am helping, and I believe that I am capable of inciting change and making progress. In some way, large or small, capable of doing good. Social responsibility is often a driving force when it comes to volunteerism. When you are a volunteer, you are making connections. You are connected with the community.
For me volunteering mind is cannot be made, it's growing inside when you're grown up. My volunteering journey was started in Social club and JRC from 6th standard. Leading plus two with Women cell and local clubs then finally NSS technical cell which paved my path for volunteering. And that gain a chance to be part of AFRC, SSS, SRS, TGF and Youth brigade.
