I began my journey as a volunteer at Emory Winship Cancer Institute through my service-learning course, Cancer Biology. At Winship, I was assigned to the BMT/Hematology Department, but I volunteered occasionally as a floater. During those occasions, I served as a Front Desk Greeter and a Hospitality Cart Volunteer. Volunteering at a cancer treatment center while learning the basic fundamentals of cancer not only enhanced my understanding of the disease, but also gave me a new perspective on cancer patients. This opportunity fostered a unique connection between the biology of cancer and the emotions and trials of the patients.
