Volunteering is a process of creating something meaningful for others and sharing amazing moments together. It is a way to help yourself by helping others. It is an opportunity to serve people and make the world a better place. Being a volunteer in different projects across the world gave me a chance to learn more about myself, meet incredible people and feel empowered.
