Role: Mentor & Tutor

Ghida has impacted the lives of young people by sharing her experiences.

Name: Ghida Khamis El-Banna

I am a Mentor and Tutor at: Kensington International School.

I have been a Springfield School Volunteer for: Two years.

I became a volunteer because: I felt that I had some tools and skills to share such as the Arabic language and my experiences as a refugee.

By volunteering I have learned:  I have learned to appreciate the things that I have and the recognize the importance of the work I do with the little kids because it helps shape their lives. I have also learned how to be an ally and a friend with kids who have similar life experiences to mine or come from a disadvantaged or oppressive community.

My favorite thing about volunteering is:  When I come back to the school for a new year the students warmly greet me and remember all the good things we did together.

Why should another caring person in the community join you as a mentor? Other volunteers should join us because we work really hard to empower young kids.They will see the students growing and learning effectively. It is very rewarding!
