Many children come from areas where their parent are financially restricted. Sometimes for these types of family having toys and fun items to play with is not a priority. I was happy to know that I could help give and and make a child smile.
It was a great experience to sit and listen to Congressmen Khanna and Pres. Warmack. It’s great to know that there are great people in our government that support us student and try their best to advocate for us. There were a lot of great topics covered during the interview.
It felt great to give toys out to people. I had a bunch at home and my little sister had given me some of her toys to donate as well. Always feels good to give back
The conversation with President Warmack and the Congressman was very enlightening. It was nice to see a minority with power and hear his perspective on certain issues. I was also surprised that he wrote about Claflin in his book.
As a computer engineering major, it is very important to me to know what types of research can be conducted for my major. In many of my internships they have asked for prior research so looking at others and the things that they have done can prepare me for what's to come in the future.
I really wanted to participate in this community service because I like to give what I can. I wanted to give a child a toy, because I feel like it's robbing them of their childhood if they don't receive one.
I enjoyed the banquet and I’m so excited to have made it this far. I’m also proud of my peers and professors for pushing through. Helping clean up was also fun. I always enjoy serving my peers.
I was a blessing to be a part of such an amazing donation.
Being able to attend the fireside chat was very eye opening. Topics such as people of color in stem, and the major wealth gap were discussed. I would love to do something like this again.
I enjoyed donating toys for the kids. I know that it will be used to make a little kid happier
Attending the fireside chat was extremely interesting. Rep. Ro Khanna have some insightful points about representation in Silicon Valley and prompted me to explore representation here on campus. I folllwed up the event by asking Dr. Warmack about representation on Claflin’s Board.
