Children and Youth Centre

 

I was regarded as a boring person as I used to be passive and not good at communicating with people. When I initially joined volunteer service, I had to express my views. I found it difficult to get accustomed to speak in public, thinking that I will be laughed at once I speak. Unexpectedly, I was applauded with shouts of `bravo' which has increased my confidence.

The volunteer service in the Centre has allowed me to grow. Apart from developing good communication skills, the experience has boosted my confidence, widened my horizon and realized how small and insignificant I was in the world. In the past, I did not know how to treasure and care about others. Coming into contact with people from different walks of life, I have discovered that many children did not have the chance to grow up in a complete family in the community. Many children have not been adequately cared for by their families which makes me deeply feel that we should take nothing for granted. Therefore, I hope I can join more social services with a view to contributing to the society and helping people in need in the society.
