Out of all the CLA Civic Leadership Sessions in the program, I particularly looked forward to the homelessness and housing policy panel. At school, I am part of a wonderful team where are have a mission to start a shelter for college students experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity.
This past week, I had the amazing opportunity to volunteer at LEAP’s Annual Gala. At first, when the volunteer opportunity was posted, I was hesitant to sign myself up because, as an introvert, night time is usually the time I spend recharging my battery. However, it has been continuously urged that volunteering is a wonderful way to get involved in the API community, especially in Los Angeles.
