Giving Back

I’ll make this quick…

 

Yesterday I had the opportunity to volunteer. I helped out at an elementary school in North Charleston with a bunch of 3rd – 5th graders that are learning to code. It was their first class and there are only 11 of them. They are using a program that MIT made called “scratch”. It is really cool and after only barely playing with it, I can see how it can help kids learn to think in a more logical manner when it comes to programming and life in general.

 

It felt really really good to be able to help out. To be able to help others at all. To be able, on the most basic level, to give back. Because, god knows, I have been lucky enough to get to where I am and it would not be that way if it were not for those important people in my life that have afforded me the chance to get to here. It is my turn to help, to give and to hopefully make the smallest difference in another persons life. I hope to have the opportunity to do it more.
