7. Tell Us A Story Of One Of Your Adventures While Pursuing This Dive (At This Level).
The dive to live a better life and help others do the same.
I have done other volunteer works before but, I want to share my experience at Break Diving, because it seems to affect me in a more positive way than other experiences I had before.
I have volunteered before but, never did I think that I would really be impacted by the place and team where I volunteered. At some places where I volunteered, I always felt out of touch and felt like I didn’t belong wherever I went. But, the day I found Break Diving, I knew it was gonna change my life forever.
For 3 weeks I had been surfing on volunteermatch.org trying to find an awesome virtual opportunity and I found some and I was pretty excited for a while volunteering there. However, after some time, the people at the organizations either lacked vision for their companies or were lazy. Just as I was gonna just quit and start to feel regret over the time I had wasted, I found Break Diving and just to apply, I was supposed to answer all of these questions. And I was like “What?” Then it suddenly came to me that maybe this company was indeed serious enough to make the process worthwhile, and the process was indeed hard and long but, seriously I never enjoyed anything like applying to Break Diving. I still can’t figure out why an arduous application would excite me.
Well, it took me 4 or 5 days to get done with the application. I was so desperate to start working and changing the world, yup I believe that I am changing the world for the better and it is possible. After I was welcomed on board the team. The team was amazing, more than amazing. I volunteered for about 6 months. It was a great time in my life, and I remain an active member of the community that I helped to build.
Break Diving for me turned out to be not just a volunteer opportunity, but rather, a home. A place where you support others to achieve their dreams, and in the meanwhile, you are achieving your own dreams too. And getting the support you need and again inspiring others by giving them the support they need to achieve their dreams. Break Diving believed in me when I doubted myself and my capabilities. It believed in what I had to offer to the the world. Not only did I get the chance to help people, but I was given a chance to pursue my dreams in life because everyone at Break Diving gave me the confidence to believe in myself and go after those dreams.
I don’t have time for Break Diving. It’s true. That, is, however why I make the time. Every time I log in and help someone else, or post about my own dreams, it gives me a chance to make impact on someone else, and for someone else to make an impact on me. I hope you too will fall in love with Break Diving as much as I have!
