Meet Katie Spencer!
Katie Spencer is seventeen years old and in her senior year of high school. In her free time, Katie likes to work on her singing skills, be with her friends, and spend time with her family. Before getting a part time job, she also enjoyed being a part of the theater company at Bedford High School.
Katie was able to join us in Nicaragua this summer and learned a lot about the people and culture there. She loved seeing the happiness and gratitude in the eyes of those we helped and would go back in a heartbeat. She is excited to be working with Color My World once again and help out the people near her home.
It was hot, it was humid, and it was hard work, but I wouldn’t change going to Nicaragua for anything in the world. Spending a week serving people every day really opens your eyes to a new way of life. It makes you so happy to know what you are doing for these people and you almost forget about the heat and your fatigue because you want to help them so bad.
Going to Nicaragua made me realize that here in the United States we live in a bubble. We may see stuff about poverty and problems in other countries on the news, or learn about it in school, but you can never truly understand it until you are completely surrounded by it.
Do you need community hours or are you interested in volunteering and become a high school liaison with Color My World please contact us and get started today making a difference!
