Member Spotlight: Natalie Olds, Selma AmeriCorps Program Member
Meet Natalie Olds, Half Time Member, currently serving at Edgewood Elementary School, a service site of the Selma AmeriCorps program.
1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps? I was motivated to join AmeriCorps for a few reasons: I like helping around my community, I needed money to have for college, and I also joined AmeriCorps to overcome my shyness.
2. What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? I would like to be able to step out of my comfort zone more. Even though this program has succeeded in bringing me a long way from being shy, I still need to work on communicating with others more.
3. What will your service focus on for the 2019-20 program year? During this program year, my service will focus on improving the student’s educational levels and continuing to give back to others in the community.
4. What are your plans after AmeriCorps? After AmeriCorps, I will still be in college. I will be taking courses for the nursing program.
Thank you for your service, Natalie!
