1. Why she ROCKS?!
“I got into volunteering because I absolutely love working with kids. I have always loved working with kids; from nannying my little cousins to coaching kids how to figure skate at Bielenberg Sport Center. Although I’m only 17, I want to pursue a medical career and become a nurse and later a pediatrician.”
2. Favorite thing to do outside of volunteering?
“I figure skate almost every other day; it’s my favorite sport/hobby! I love to travel, hang with friends and families, attend sporting events and in the spring, run track.”
3. Do you have any kids or pets of your own?
“I’m only in high school so no kids yet! My family has a fish tank of around 50 little guppies though.”
4. If you could create a new candy bar, what would be in it and what would you name it?
“I would create a candy with caramel, marshmallow, peanuts, s’mores cracker and a chocolate coat. I’d name it Galaxy Heaven.”
5. Share a favorite volunteer experience or story:
“There are so many fun memories! I love playing in the playroom with the patients or the patient’s siblings. The Child Life Zone is always fun, especially doing arts and crafts. Holding babies is another one of my favorite things to do!”
Thanks for volunteering, Chonhanh! Your passion for Children’s (and kids!) is evident in the work that you do!
