I volunteer because I enjoy becoming involved in non-academic activities alongside my studies and find it beneficial for my mental health, as well as being a brilliant addition to my CV. Volunteering is highly rewarding for me as I'm making a positive difference to the local community.

There aren't many things in life that show the impact that just an individual can have, but volunteering is one of those. Seeing this with your own eyes and understanding that you've contributed to helping a person or a community is a feeling I doubt can be matched.
