My name is Tito Williams, I am sophomore student at the University of the Arts. Growing up in Wilmington Delaware, I came to the city of Brotherly love to pursue my Education in art and design while making a positive impact in my community.
After 3 months of living full time in the city, exploring, enjoying the food and festivals, I felt as though i needed to do more. I wanted to become more then a contributing student, instead I would also become apart of this community by serving those in need living within. I started my search for volunteer opportunities in center city. I spoke to my advisor and she sent me in the right direction.
In no time I was volunteering at Broad Street Ministry, where I serve the philadelphia homeless, temporary and full-time assisted housing community in a number of ways. By Getting involved in their mail distribution, art therapy, and meal programs, I feel the benefits of the small but needed impact in the philadelphia area.
Through this volunteer experience I am learning, "volunteering is not only a service to others but a service to myself as well."
