How are your values expressed through your community engagement and community service work?
I was a business student, and all I care was profit and efficiency until I am work with CCS, I start to feel more related to other humans, instead of numbers.

What is one thing everyone should know about community engagement and community service?
It’s always a much more effective way to learn when you can practice how to use it in the real world.

Did you find CCS or did CCS find you?
CCS found me.

What is your favorite memory of CCS?
It’s always about the love and care I see from each other’s eyes.

If CCS were an animal, what would it be and why?
I will say, dog, because the dog is willing to contribute. CCS is definitely placed to contribute. Also, the dog is the first animal that comes to my mind when I think about commitment. CCS is really about commitment. So that’s why I think the dog is the best animal.
