AMIGOS has been an integral part of my personal growth. In my college application essays I wrote about the challenges I overcame when planning community service projects and tackling cultural differences in order to connect with my community in a meaningful way. I think colleges really liked that I had committed myself to a nonprofit not just for a year, but for three full years as a volunteer, veteran volunteer, and training staff member! I believe my AMIGOS commitment helped me get into Yale.
