And THIS is why Volunteering is important

And THIS is why Volunteering is important


I just received the following e-mail from the best teacher in the world, Elizabeth Newton:

Elizabeth Newton was my psychology teacher years ago, and we have kept in touch. She is one of the very best teachers I have ever had. She cares so much about each one of her students’ success, and dedicates personal resources and time to ensure the excel.

She is now at UBC Sauder School of Business, and every year, she asks me to volunteer my time to go speak to her students about what it’s really like to be an entrepreneur, and to run a business. I love going. I love seeing how excited the students are, and answer all the questions they have!

She just sent me the article to show me that those talks have a real impact on the students. I know the e-mail is about my contribution, but really, it’s about Elizabeth’s contribution to these students. I have no doubt that she changes their lives, just by having them in her class. She works so hard to bring those experiences to her class, and make the learning relevant, and real.

As for me, I will always volunteer to share my experience, and hopefully, like this time, it will make a difference to someone. 🙂

Most of the lovely e-mails, letter, cards and words I receive are not for me to share. They are heartfelt and personal, and it would diminish the sentiment if I just posted them. But since this is my journal, and I do want to remember some of those things exactly as they happened, I will share the ones that are ok to share, and I won’t share names or personal details.
I got this e-mail note at work today:
