Volunteering After College

by Veronica Hernandez

I graduated from TAMIU with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a minor in Sociology. As my college experience came to an end (for now), I wanted to give back to others just as TAMIU gave me an unforgettable experience:  a tremendous amount of memories and an education. I began to look for a way to give back to the community, and as I was looking for a volunteer experience related to psychology, I found the Lamar Bruni Vergara Education Center. I felt that I would be able to contribute the help that the community so long deserves. At the Education Center, I've

been granted the chance to give informational presentations to the community about domestic violence with my supervisor. I've helped out during holiday events for Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine's Day. As a volunteer, I've wanted to offer help to others, but I've been the one who has learned numerous valuable lessons along the way. On my first day of volunteering, I was unsure if I could make a difference. As I invested more time volunteering at the Education Center, I felt comfortable being more open and expressing my ideas. Volunteering to assist victims of domestic violence has been a once in a lifetime experience, and I recognize that I am a better version of myself. I know that I can make a difference no matter how big or small the task. As Deann Hollis mentions, "The heart of a volunteer is never measured in size, but by the depth of the commitment to make a difference in the lives of others."
