What is your favorite memory or experience with KHK? My favorite memory of KHK is helping children at the Gift of Giving event find presents for their parents/loved ones with such eagerness and genuine joy.
What are the most important skills you have gained/developed from KHK?
I have developed better teaching skills through my project Write To Inspire and have learned the importance of education as a base for self-confidence.
How has KHK given you the power to make a positive impact on another person’s life?
I know now that both little things like a gift at Christmas or the bigger ones being someone’s first step in instilling a lifelong interest in reading/writing are important act of kindness. Because of KHK I am not afraid to jump into a service venture and find myself doing random acts of kindness more often that I did before I started volunteering.
Why would you encourage others to get involved with KHK? KHK is the perfect organization for middle and high schoolers. It allows teens to have guided service opportunities but also gives them leadership skills. Most importantly KHK gives you an opportunity to understand the importance of community service from a young age.
