Volunteer of the Month

February 2018

 

 

MESA is pleased to spotlight Lindsey as our Volunteer of the Month. Lindsey is an invaluable part of our volunteer team. Lindsey has always been such a willing volunteer and makes every effort to participate in everything we do. Thank you, Lindsey, for your dedication to MESA and our community!

Let’s hear from Lindsey!

  1. What do you enjoy most about volunteering with MESA?
    I really like spending time with the other advocates. Everyone I’ve met through MESA has been so amazing.
  2. How long have you been with MESA?
    I finished training October 2017.
  3. What is your favorite dessert?
    Cinnamon rolls- Nothing’s better than a warm, frosted cinnamon roll.
  4. What is your biggest accomplishment to date?
    In high school I presented a workshop on inclusive sex ed at a conference for queer youth. I heard back from several members of the audience that it was really helpful and the first time they had ever felt included in and understood by the health education they were receiving. I’m still really proud of the presentation I put together and the impact it had.
  5. What is your favorite joke?
    Where does a mansplainer get his water? From a well, actually.
  6. If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
    I think it’d be cool to be able to produce flame. I have perpetually cold hands and always forget about mugs of tea, so some warming ability would be really practical day to day (in addition to being a great party trick).
