    Running Head: My Volunteering Experiences My life has changed ever since I stepped foot inside St. Elizabeth’s and Bryan Hospital as a volunteer four years ago.

    Through work experience and volunteering, I have been amazed by the diverse knowledge of the doctors, their dedication to medicine and patient care, and it is a vocation I am ready to commit to. I found the contrast of shadowing an orthopaedic surgeon to a GP very interesting, how an orthopaedic surgeon is more focused on the pain that affects them. Clearly mending an arthritic knee or worn hip will impact their daily life, but the GP showed me how vital it is to treat the whole patient, not…

    For my volunteering experience, I spent about an hour and a half of time at my internship over the course of a few months making quilts for kids in need. Although the time that I spent working on the quilts was just a small piece of time out of my day, it felt very rewarding to help a little bit at a time, knowing that I was contributing to a bigger cause of women who are in need. The process of making the quilts involved cutting the fabric pieces, tying the knots to keep the strips together,…
