Exciting Experiences Interacting with Kids Song Lim (11th Grade, Tenafly High School)
At home, I take care of my 8 year old brother and he usually asks me for help with his homework. I was happy to help him. I have always enjoyed engaging with kids; I would have fun looking after them. At Give Chances, I was given the opportunity to help many kids around my brother’s age. In the beginning I did not know many kids and I was a bit lost. However, as time went on, I grew closer to them because of how open and welcoming they were. Seeing the kids improve and actively learn was heartwarming and made me feel proud. The sight of them interacting, having fun, and doing work at the same time is exciting. This made me realize how wonderful it is to help my community. My experience at Give Chances encourages me to partake in more opportunities where I give back to my community.
