jesse-85I can’t believe how much time has flown by! There are already only a few more weeks in school and I’m so close to being halfway done with college… It blows my mind.

It has definitely been a life-changing experience so far. One of my favorite aspects of college is the ability to share what your passionate about with the large community you’re in. Many schools have the resources available for you to create, organize, and host an event on campus. Whatever it is, YOU can do it.

Like dancing? Put together a showcase. Like Art? Organize an art show. Is there an issue you care deeply about? Put together an event or forum. Whatever it is, it is up to you to bring that to your community. You don’t even have to be in college to do it! You can do it at your high school, in your neighborhood, at the local Rec Center, wherever! All that matters is that you are able to bring something to the community.

One of the things I was hoping to bring to my community was awareness on the issue of Gang Violence. I reached out to the administration on campus, contacted some of the student organizations I was involved with, and helped organize an event that I think went pretty well.

Check out the video I made to help begin the spread of awareness.
