Be a Volunteer

“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” - Maya Angelou

Do you volunteer to help others? If not, why not? The paradigm of life is the more you help others, the more you help yourself. Hosts Rose and Ruhani share their experiences with being a volunteer. Rose talks about being a counselor at Camp Harmony where she was able to build relationships and have an impact on dozens of homeless and less fortunate children using her leadership skills. Ruhani believes that working with children is specifically fulfilling. Ruhani is currently volunteering teaching a Writing with the Stars FREE online writing workshop. ( She also tutored for a program that taught children in India English. They discuss the importance of volunteering for nonprofits where you believe in the mission. Ruhani and Rose provide information on various opportunities and suggest people do a Google search to align passions with volunteer work including conservation, farm work, climate change, art, or working with the elderly. Kevin Choo, the newest reporter for Be The Star You Are!® launches his segment, “A.I. and Us,” to discuss the ramifications A.I. has and will have on different parts of our life. Art`ificial Intelligence is a complex field and Kevin knows his stuff. Stay tuned for more.

We have numerous virtual opportunities that will help you grow as a leader.

Bio: Kevin Choo

Kevin Choo is a sophomore at Amador Valley High School. His favorite subjects are Math, Computer Science, and Biology. In addition, he enjoys playing badminton and reading books. He speaks Korean, English, and French. He was taught the first two from birth since he is of Korean descent but was born in the U.S.A., while the last is from an elective class he is taking. He has lived in Pleasanton, California his entire life but has traveled to several places for summer vacations, with his personal favorite being Switzerland. He is relatively introverted and turtle-like, so unless he is contacted or prodded first, he tends to be holed up in the shell he calls his room. His favorite type of day is when it’s raining, and he is free for the entire day. That way, he can stay cozy in his room, reading a good book or watching Youtube while listening to the pattering of the rain. He is also fairly absent-minded or air-headed most of the time, but very efficient when he puts his mind to something.| His segment on Express Yourself is A.I. and Us, about the ramifications of artificial intelligence.
