As I walked into my Jumpstart interview at the beginning of my freshman year, I did not realize that I was walking into the heart of my future career. Jumpstart focuses on the day that every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed and for the past three years of my college career, I have been contributing to that mission. Being promoted from Corps Member to Team Leader and eventually to Volunteer Coordinator, I have cultivated an extreme passion for the work that Jumpstart does. This passion thrives from my own personal motto that it does not matter where you come from; you always have an opportunity for success. I strongly believe that with consistent support and guidance, as Jumpstart provides, students will succeed, regardless of their zip code.
