During my apprenticeship, I hope to refine my ability to connect with and befriend all peoples in the community. I want to gain the trust and respect of others by my actions, supported by my words (not vise-versa/in that order). I hope to broaden my mind by peeking into the lives of individuals I will serve and learn more about the world that surrounds me by listening to their stories. I want to continue to develop my leadership skills by connecting people to work together to achieve a common goal. I hope to improve my critical thinking and exercise my ability to make quick, informed decisions daily. I want to practice innovation and efficiency when finding practical solutions to problems and meeting the needs of others by employing a strengths-based approach. I hope to challenge my moral fabric and strengthen my character by exposing myself to new experiences that will undoubtedly be tough to process. I hope to teach others tools to leverage themselves towards a bright future. I hope to leave the program more passionate, more informed and more equipped to be a change-maker.
individuals have the power to pave their future, but many fail to recognize the opportunity and miss out on the chance.
being a grown up is hard.
while i really respect the idea of ruining the elitist brand of A and F,
I cant help but find the flaw in exploiting the homeless.
If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
