“I became a volunteer tutor at Escondido Public Library to help people improve their quality of life through literacy; it’s been such a rewarding experience to see students build their confidence and apply their newfound knowledge in school or at work. Through tutoring, my own life and the way I view the world has dramatically shifted. I can honestly that I’ve also changed for the better. When one teaches…two learn.
