Volunteer of the Month – April

Name

Emma Smith

Volunteer Role

Homework Support Tutor

Length of time in position

6 months

I enjoy volunteering at MECA because…

Working with the students is honestly the best part of my week. There’s a moment when it clicks for the student when they finally understand a concept and the happiness they feel is something I share knowing that I helped.

If I could be granted one wish I would ask for…

A world where no one is judged or hated for being themselves.

I really admire…

Emma Watson. She is an icon for feminism and a role model for girls and women everywhere with her humanitarian contributions and her powerful speeches at the United Nations and at award shows.

If I could have a superpower it would be…

To be able to speak every language.

At the moment, my favourite song…

Song for Someone – U2

My favourite food is…

Chicken Parmigiana

I am really looking forward to…

Starting my teaching career.

As a MECA volunteer I have learnt…

How to connect with younger students and be able to explain concepts for their understanding.
