Lydia @ St. Jude Marathon Hydration Station

The St. Jude Marathon was this past weekend, and I helped volunteer to provide water and other hydrating things for the runners in the marathon. I supported the runners and cheered them on as they ran by because what they are doing is incredibly difficult but it supports a great cause. I really had a great time because other than hanging out water, I was able to read the runners names on their sheets as they passed by and was able to encourage them each by name so that they could feel supported and encouraged.

Target House

I went with a couple of Memphis Women's soccer friends to the Target House to wrap Christmas presents. We ended up unloading boxes of gifts, sorting them to different groups and moving them out of storage so more boxes could come. Though it was not what I was expecting, I had a great time learning more about the Target House and the things they do for the kids at St. Jude.

Lydia @ Zumbathon

The Memphis Women's Soccer team and I supported our friends Tyler and Alyssa and St. Jude at the Zumbathon put on at St. Annes Church. We had a great time dancing and working out for a good cause and it was extremely exciting to see everyone go all in and really have a good time.

Lydia @ Volunteer Tutoring

In this impact, a classmate reached out to me in my geology class to help her with some material as this is her first year in the states and English is not her first language. I helped explain to her the main concepts of a chapter and helped her define them in our own words, so she could better grasp these ideas and put them into her project/powerpoint that she would have to present in front of the class. One of the main things I helped her with was the pronunciation of the scientific terms she would be talking about during her presentation, but also explained them so that she understood what she was talking about so she could then take what I helped her with and then help/teach it to the rest of the class. In doing this, I learned how to assist someone that is not well versed in the English language and struggles to understand concepts in a language that is not their first.

Lydia @ tutoring

Because Art History is my major and something I am passionate about, I was able to use my passion to volunteer and help a fellow classmate that struggles in the area. We worked on a vast amount of art work and I explained why certain things were important and how they related to their time period and their location. I saw that breaking things down for this student was very helpful and as I explained the why of everything she understood the information more and more. this was also helpful to me because I used something I am passionate about to help others.

MLK Day of Service

For this day of service, I went to Dorothy's Place, which is a day care center for people suffering with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. I helped with various activities throughout the day such as demonstrating different stretches, read trivia, called out bingo, and helped clean mats. I really enjoyed this experience, especially the trivia part as I was able to talk to different people and witness everyones different personalities and just have a good time.
