Favorite L4S project
TG: My favorite L4S project was when I hosted a Parent's Night Out for our church. I coordinated volunteers, trained them, and created an entire theme night for kids while their parents got a night out for Valentine's Day.
MW: I really enjoyed the lemonade stand that we did last year. I think everyone had a lot of fun and we raised a substantial amount of money for a great cause.
What has HOBY given you?
TG: HOBY has given me a renewed confidence in myself, the ability to open up and make new friends, and also the opportunity to set attainable, but incredible goals.
MW: HOBY has given me confidence to express my thoughts and that I can make peoples lives better through my words and deeds.
What do you hope to pass on to the 2014 HOBY ILCS Ambassadors?
TG: I would love to give the ILCS Ambassadors a hug. I want to genuinely congratulate them on taking an opportunity to change their lives. I want to encourage them to not grow stagnant, but to let their passions live on and create something great! I want them to know how killer awesome they are, and I want them to see that too.
MW: I hope to pass on my love for volunteering to the HOBY 2014 Ambassadors. I hope that they take advantage of this wonderful opportunity that is HOBY and make as many friends as they can because they will last a lifetime. My personal goal for the ambassadors is that through this experience, they come to understand the importance of their thoughts and that they are worthy of the respect of others and the respect of themselves.
