Inside The Mind of Abhinaya

“One of my happiest moments was my 2015 Alternative Service Break experience through Habitat for Humanity. It was a week-long service trip during spring break at Jacksonville, Florida where I had an opportunity to go build houses and work with AmeriCorps. I never knew it was possible to become so close to 17 other people in a week, but the other Tech students, advisors, and I instantly became a family. We were truly making a difference. Having the chance to meet the future house owners and seeing their love and appreciation for our service brought immense joy. This experience will be forever cherished. As a strong believer in “we make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give,” I will always be grateful for being a part of this service project.”
