Mayerli’s Experience Volunteering

My name is Mayerli and I am an au pair in my second year in New Jersey. I would like to tell you about my experience as a volunteer at the vaccine site. Two weeks ago I volunteered to help and get my vaccination that same day as well. It was an incredible experience. I decided to volunteer the whole day, in the morning my task was to help disabled people to guide them through the short path and take them to the registration area, then helping them to get the vaccine.

It was great to talk to them all the way and see their eyes of gratitude and happiness with me. It was very exciting. In the afternoon, my task was to assign the number of tables to the people who were making the line. It was exciting to talk to them a bit too! I invite au pairs to volunteer because it is an experience that is worth living in another country and we can also talk to other people and it helps to improve our language.
