Emily’s Story

Emily began volunteering at Goodwill to learn new skills. She enjoys helping people in the community who are learning English as a second language create better opportunities for themselves and their families.

Emily’s favorite part about being a classroom assistant is getting to know the students’ families, occupations, interests, and goals. She enjoys meeting people from different backgrounds and cultures. After Emily completes her service, she will attend the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai’s M.S. Genetic Counseling program in New York City.
