WEBVTT 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:05.000 Being a first generation in my family I was very afraid to come to Western and start getting involved. 00:00:05.000 --> 00:00:09.000 When I first came to Western the first office I got involved with was Service Learning. 00:00:09.000 --> 00:00:12.000 Through service learning I gained a lot of volunteer opportunities. 00:00:12.000 --> 00:00:16.000 Going out of the state and being involved with different volunteer projects. 00:00:16.000 --> 00:00:20.000 As a student I was also able to work for the office. 00:00:20.000 --> 00:00:24.000 And through my student employment I was able to recruit other students to get involved. 00:00:24.000 --> 00:00:30.000 I understand the feeling of being afraid and getting involved so I was glad I was able to be that support for those students.
