Why did you join TBE Exec?

I joined TBE exec because I saw the opportunity to be involved in an organization that brings over 3000 students together to give back for a day of service. There is no day in the year really where we make a bigger impact, and especially one that we can see. We are truly changing the Lincoln community with the big event, and I wanted to be a bigger part of it.

Why are you passionate about TBE?

I’m passionate about the big event because first, I don't think there is a better way than showing your appreciation or gratitude for your community than giving back to the place you live. And we can do this with simply giving some of our time. Second, I think showing students the value and importance of service is huge, and it can truly change someone's mindset.
