Why is it good to give back to your community? Where do you help out?
The phrase ‘give back’ is precisely why I think it is important to do so. Where I am in life is because of my community. People, whether strangers or family, helped me to become who I am. Giving back is a mere gesture of continuing the cycle of helping others when so many people have helped me.
My community right now is my college. This year I joined my student government to help out. We support our community by making it safe, sustainable, and inclusive. That’s how I give back!
