Growing up, I was very involved in my church and was very passionate about spreading the Word and helping people, but I felt as if there wasn’t enough being done. This was until I found out about a mission project that my youth group went on every year at the beginning of June.
This summer, I worked in Brentwood, Tennessee at Brentwood Country Club as a pool bar tender. In Tennessee, you can be 18 to get your ABC license and work as a bartender. Before I could work at the country club I had to go to an ABC class, which was eight hours long.
One of my favorite parts of summer throughout high school was volunteering at Sawyerville Day Camp, a free camp for kids in Hale County in the black belt of Alabama. The organization has a clear mission.
