From the early age of seven, I had the opportunity to be a member of Sarah Heinz House. I am who I am today because of the varied experiences I gained during my time as a member. Through my eleven career at Sarah Heinz House, I was able to grow as a student, leader, and person. SHH prides itself on developing the character of each and every member. My first volunteer experience was at the age of eight. Since I was a swim team member, I was able to volunteer my time to help other members learn how to swim. Volunteerism and philanthropy is still a huge part of my life due to my early foundation. During my high school years, I was selected to serve on the regional and national steering committees for the Keystone Conferences. This started my experiences with public speaking and honed my leadership skills. Due to my strong leadership abilities, I was able to serve as president in many organizations and also now lead an elementary school. Sarah Heinz House is a special place for young children. Of all the amazing and meaningful activities/clubs/etc that SHH has to offer, the most special part of Heinz is the people that make up the organization. The full-time and part-time staff members and volunteers give and given and give their time, money, and support to help each member realize his/her potential. The staff cares and loves each member unconditionally. As I said, I am who I am because of Sarah Heinz House, a place I considered my home for many years.
