“My desire to volunteer at The Free Clinic stems from me wanting to give back to what I consider my community at large, which is the poor. I grew up in Del Paso Heights, which was a food dessert, until this decade, and one of Sacramento's ghettos.
Volunteering at The Free Clinic has furthered my desire to help people from communities of need, specifically, the Spanish-speaking patients. The Free Clinic gives me the opportunity to communicate with these patients in their language.”
