6. Describe a time when you helped someone else or helped with a cause.
One time when I have helped someone else with a cause was my next-door neighbour. They were going away for a holiday and did not know where to put their dog, so I volunteered to help them out until they were back by feeding the dog daily and playing with it for its regular exercise. I felt very fortunate for the neighbours to entrust me with such as a big responsibility since I was very young.
7. Describe a time when someone helped you.
The last time someone helped me was when I volunteered for my house to do a marathon, I wasn’t happy at the time because I didn’t like running but I thought what could go wrong. Towards the end of the race I was coming last, one of my house group mates came alongside me and cheered me on to finish the race. I was very grateful for this boy’s empathic actions and thanked him ever since.
8. About what issues do you have concerns or feel most passionate?
What issues I feel most passionate about is that everyone deserves a full stomach and a roof over their head especially when I see those who are less fortunate begging and pledging for money and/or food because I think in this world there is enough food and materials to certify everyone basic needs.

I have joined my local football club to help in refereeing young children over some school days near the end of the year.
