Doing service this year was a very good and well-rounding experience for me. I learned a lot and it will prepare me for future tasks. The highlight of my service this year was volunteering at the explorers club. I looked through slides and put their descriptions into a database. They were slides from Robert Peary’s expedition to the north pole. The slides were black and white images, sometimes painted in color, that had been put into glass and preserved. Many people will look at the explorers club database and see the work I have done. I feel good knowing that I have helped this non-profit organization out and knowing I have developed the skills I have. It was great working with actual artifacts from real expeditions. I am thankful that I did this service this year.
