Member Spotlight: Candice Parker, Selma AmeriCorps Program Member
Meet Candice Parker, 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 couple of reasons. First, I was motivated to join because I wanted to get the experience of working with others. The second reason I was motivated to join was because it allowed me to help my community.
2. What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? I would like to continue getting the experience of working with children because it will help me with my future career. Also, I hope that it will continue to make me a better person.
3. What will your service focus on for the 2019-20 program year? During this program year, my service will focus on helping children who aren’t strong in math or reading. Also, I will focus on making my community better.
4. What are your plans after AmeriCorps? My plans after AmeriCorps are to continue to go to college and complete nursing school. After, I finish college I will be a traveling Registered Nurse.
Thank you for your service, Candice!
