"I love to serve, I love to do things for others. I think that especially at this point of my life like I’m healthy, I’m young, I have nothing but time on my hands... so why not give back to communities? It really frustrates me when I see things that aren’t working in society when it’s a simple fix, like, why isn’t someone doing something for that. There’s a lot of inequality from where I grew up... I found myself asking why is this happening? Why isn’t someone doing that? It just grew old. Like, I can do that. I can try."
It’s the last day! @_sarah_hamilton_ AmeriCorps alum and Field Supervisor for @southwestconservationcorps will be posting portraits and stories collected on the ground in Puerto Rico from the AmeriCorps Disaster Response Team (A-DRT) – different service corps from all over the country united to help communities recover after natural disasters. AmeriCorps members have removed around 340 hazard trees.
