“Once when I was talking to my father about a volunteer experience, he stopped me and asked, “Why do you do what you do so passionately? Why are you so dedicated to serving?” It is so easy thinking selfishly, but it becomes a challenge caring outwardly. I love caring for someone other than myself because it is both challenging and refreshing. I cannot find worth or purpose in my life without giving back to my community. I simply find my identity in service,” Aguilar said.
