School On Wheels
My name is Iris Portillo. I am a Junior at LAUSD USC Media Arts and Engineering High School and a member of the USC MAE GBLA Team. I have been volunteering for School On Wheels for about a year now. The time I’ve dedicated to School On Wheels has allowed me to grow friendships with the staff, volunteers, and students. The children who attend School On Wheels are in most cases behind in schooling due to their current living situation. The thing I love most is having the capability to help someone my own age, or even older. They appreciate the few hours you are willing to spend with them and are motivated to further their education. This program has influenced me into viewing the world in a different perspective and appreciating everything I am granted.
