My freshman year of high school i met the most amazing woman, her name was Veronica (Ms. Veronica) and she worked for this organization based at my school called City Year. I didn’t know what her purpose was but I knew that when i grew up I wanted to do what she was doing. She would greet me every morning with the brightest smile and said that she was always available to help me whenever i needed it. Down in our lunch room we had the City Year area which was this room decked out in City Year paraphernalia where students could go and study or just chill during their respective lunch times. Later in the year Ms. Veronica along with others helped put on the school’s talent show and they did an amazing job. I didn’t know what her purpose was but i wanted to be just like her….now today i stand before you as the recruitment chair for Villanova University representing City Year on the campus. I’m hours away from turning in my application and (hopefully) months away from my dreams coming true and getting that email or phone call that says that I’ve made it and that i’m an official City Year corps member…I’m on my way to #makebetterhappen #CITYYEAR #giveayear #changetheworld
