Children’s Volunteer Services presents: Red-Vested Rockstar!
1. Why she ROCKS?!
“Ever since my brother was 8 months old, we have been in and out of the hospital because of his medical condition. I still remember when volunteers came in his room here at Children’s to play with him and I. Other times, we would come to Children’s and my brother and I would play in the Sibling Play Area. Now, I feel that I can really connect with the kids that I volunteer with in the Sibling Play Area!”
A bit more about Daniela: “I’m learning Korean, and like making desserts. This year, I will be starting high school (9th grade). I do homeschooling and I really enjoy it!”
2. Favorite thing to do outside of volunteering?
“Spending time with my friends/family and learning Korean.”
3. Do you have any kids or pets of your own?
“I have two dogs: Cookie is the mom and Sugar is the daughter.”
4. If you could create a new candy bar, what would be in it and what would you name it?
“Coconut, pecans and milk chocolate would be in it. I would call it ‘Crazy Coconut.’”
5. Share a favorite volunteer experience or story:
“It was time for me to leave the Sibling Play Area because my shift was over. One of the little girls that I was playing with didn’t want me to leave; she wanted me to stay and play with her some more. I ended up staying a couple minutes extra to played with her. Doing that made me feel happy because I saw that the kids enjoy playing with me!”
Thank you, Daniela, for sharing your family’s positive experiences at Children’s! Your compassion and love for kids shows each time you volunteer!
