“I’m a physician from India. When I came to the United States I wanted to give back my time in the health care field while I work on getting my medical license in the U.S. I thought OneWorld’s mission statement and values really match my own beliefs regarding helping everyone in need with compassion and cultivating community wellness. My expertise matched with the Covid-19 vaccine tent. I’m very proud to be a part of the OneWorld team. I get to meet new people, hear incredible stories and learn some Spanish. I’m so proud to play a role in keeping the community safe.”
–Yamini Arukala, Vaccinator
“I started learning Spanish in 2017 and wanted to be able to practice the language and help others at the same time. Volunteering as an ESL instructor at the Learning Community Center and helping at the Baby Boutique allows me to do both! I am a social worker, so I enjoy helping others when I can. Volunteering is a way to connect with people and strengthen the community. Something small for you can be the biggest thing for someone else. You learn not only about the culture, ideas and perspective of someone else, but you also learn things about yourself.”
–Melissa Ramming, LCC & Baby Boutique
