What have you gained by participating in The Congressional Award?

While the enjoyable activities and excursions tied to golf, physical fitness, and solo exploration were undoubtedly fun, the most important lessons and feeling of fulfillment came from the countless opportunities to make a positive impact on others. Whether through community service, mentorship, or other forms of assistance, the act of helping not only contributed to the betterment of the recipients but also became a source of deep satisfaction and purpose for me. These experiences have shaped not just my individual growth but have fostered a profound sense of responsibility and empathy, emphasizing the significance of contributing to my community and the people in it.
