Why did you join TBE Exec?

I applied for The Big Event Exec team because I was looking for an opportunity to get more involved in an organization I am passionate about. As a freshman I was encouraged to apply for the Operations Staff and I figured I would give it a shot although I did not know much about the organization at the time. I got the position and saw first hand the positive impact that The Big Event had on the community, and I knew it was something I wanted to be apart of to continue to grow the event and make it even better.

Why are you passionate about TBE?

I am passionate about The Big Event because of the direct impact our volunteers have on the community. While on Operations Staff I had the opportunity to talk to people who would be having volunteers come to their residence. Every community member that had people come the year before raved about how thankful they were for students to spend a few hours of their day to help them with things they can no longer do themselves. It was pretty impactful to see how much it meant to community of Lincoln and that is why I want to be apart of the event's continued success.
