Anna volunteering at the Boys and Girls Club
Anna Terekhova, a World Link student from Russia, is making a remarkable impact on her host community and school. Anna has volunteered 21 hours of service at the Boys and Girls Club. She monitors the children’s activities, offers tutoring, reads books, and teaches crafts, but Anna’s community service doesn’t stop there! She has also gardened with the local rescue mission, played bingo and visited with veterans at the Veteran Affairs Hospital, and volunteered as a docent with the Arts and Museum Association.
 
Anna takes pleasure in her role as an ambassador; thus far she has given four presentations about her home country—three to her classmates and one to a local men’s group. To make the presentation more exciting, she served Russian pancakes, which were a big hit!
 
Anna is very active and passionate about participating in school activities. She received an award for being a Leadership Commissioner of Eco-consciousness. She is a member of four clubs: the Shelter Animals Club, Film Club, Key Club, and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) Club—which gives her an opportunity to participate in discussions about teen life and is a forum for supporting fellow classmates. Her FLEX program year is off to a great start!
 
Congratulations, Anna!
