We often forget what it really means to be happy, but being surrounded by wonderful people reminds you of the true meaning behind that word.

When I read about the VCU initiative to invite an international student over for Christmas, as they would be spending the holidays away from their family, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to share the joy of Christmas and our traditions with someone new.

 left with a much greater appreciation for life and learned that when you are genuinely happy, as these people are, no one can take it away from you because it is something that comes from within

When I started studying at UIC Barcelona I was excited. First, because it was my first year living in Barcelona, but especially due to all the opportunities I could see I would have. Opportunities of all kinds, but above all, I was attracted to those that allowed me to help the people in the city most in need

I like to think I’ve done my bit to help, because in the end it’s not a question of “the more you volunteer, the better”, but rather giving it your all

We knew that it would go to people who really need it, who, even if you sometimes you don't think about it, are not so far away from us and are people like you and like me...

Volunteering is the most selfish commitment you can make, because you give everything you have, knowing full well that you’ll get back ten times more in return
