"One of the questions all applicants to NHC Pittsburgh are asked is “what does service mean to you.” Before I began my first service term in 2016, I thought I knew what service was. I had volunteered with various organizations in various capacities throughout high school and college. I had dedicated both time and money to causes whose mission I supported. But when you are completing a full-time service year with AmeriCorps, service begins to take on a different meaning."
"the passionate energy of the Sulzbacher staff has inspired me to not let my knowledge of these issues negatively impact my view of the world, but rather to channel my anger into passion, and use this passion to continue seeking out opportunities to serve others."
"Bit by bit, standing next to my health fair table, surrounded by a system she is only beginning to navigate, we create small connections that bypass the fences between us. Somehow, these commonalities feel like victories."
