How I have learned and grown from YIA…..
From a student who just need hours to fill in school volunteer sheet, now I become willing, proud, and glad to help since my works can provide support to under served groups in Orange County. Looking back to the past events, they have not only created the greatest impact on me, but also taught me valuable lessons on how youth’s actions can be significant to help the community. The lessons and experience I gained from YIA are very valuable and useful in my life. I take more initiative during events and leading students. With all developed skills I learned from YIA, I believe I can encourage more youth to join.
Hello, my name is Lilian Huang and I’ve been in YIA for 5 years. These years of volunteer and training have really impacted me not only as a student but also as a leader. The counselors in YIA have taught me the importance of being a good role model to others. Their kindness and dependability inspire me to treat others well and to take responsibility in whatever situation. Whenever I volunteer with other students, it makes me realize the joy of working with others to better each other and the community around us. This desire to work with others has led to many beautiful results, and I hope that it will lead me to help create a better world.
Hello, my name is Julian Lin and I’ve been in the YIA for 3 years. Being in YIA, I learned a lot of leadership skills that helped me in my personal life. Some of those things include how to be a good leader, how to get along with others, and how to overcome my fears. Being a leader is a lot of responsibility but it doesn’t mean you can make them do what you want. You have to consider the situation at hand and see who is suitable for what tasks. If you can get along with the people around you, things can be easier. While I was in this program, I made a lot of friends and throughout those years, we became good friends. During my time in YIA, I learned to overcome some of my fears. Things like talking to strangers and doing community service. However, as time went on, I started making connections with other people and the organizations that we serve.
