1. I interviewed my mom because I look up to her as a person and for her community involvement. From the conversation I learned she makes a difference in the classroom because she is a teacher. It is rewarding for her to see the first graders transition from being unable to read in the fall to reading chapter books in the spring. She helps increase the literacy of our community for future generations. Charitable giving and community service has made her feel more empathetic. It is important to get involved in charitable giving and community service to learn the value of having to work for what you want. Some tips to a joyful life she had were: compromise, work hard, and set goals.
  2. I enjoyed Kevin Kirst’s speech on the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight because he proved how genuine the organization is. I loved how he gave background stories from the veterans on their trips. I think it would be a great organization to donate to because they scored a 15 on the rating chart.
