DECEMBER MEMBER SPOTLIGHTS
Raphael is a 2nd year Aerospace Engineering Major, and was a member of Trix Fam! Here are a few words he shared about his RCC experience:
I participated in my high school's Red Cross Club back when I was in high school, and I really enjoyed the experience I got from it. That experience motivated me to continue taking part in Red Cross in college, and it led me to find RCC at UCI.
The main aspect I really enjoy about volunteering is being able to give back to the community and doing something for the greater good. For me, giving back was an important aspect to understand not just in volunteering, but in life, in general.
My favorite RCC volunteering event so far was probably Penguin Watch (though Humbug was a close second) because it was really fun collaborating with other RCC members to find out how many penguins, penguin chicks, and etc. there were on each photo (it really required a good eye!). Also, as a side note, it was just really awesome getting to see all the cute penguins.
A quirky fact about me is that I enjoy making and hearing puns and daddy jokes, which the ones I make get mixed feedback about from my friends (like groans... or hahas... from them).
