StandUp For Kids
November 29, 2012

As the volunteer Executive Director in Washington, DC, I have met a lot of people who inspired me. The youth we work with have such a passion for life that even adverse circumstances cannot deter -- whether it's the young man who kept himself sane on the streets by creating documentaries of his experience, the young lady who sleeps in a shelter at night but does modern dance during the day, or the transgender young lady who always has a smile on her face despite the constant harassment she faces on the street, they all prove that young people on the streets are so much more than the label "homeless." I have also met dozens of community members who inspire me every day -- our organization is run entirely by a team of people who are dedicated, professional, and enthusiastic about our work despite coming to it after 12-hour workdays and on their weekends. I feel truly lucky to be a part of such an organization.
