National Volunteer Week Spotlight: Raniya Zaripova
Raniya, who has been volunteering since October of 2016, first came to Seattle Goodwill to take free English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes at Seattle's Job Training and Education (JTE) Center. Two months into her classes, she decided to volunteer, helping other English learners improve their speaking skill. At Goodwill, she discovered her passion to help others.
"Volunteering is very fun, and you will get more when you give. I know that jobs change lives, and I completely support this statement, and Goodwill is all about changing lives. I'm really passionate about education and nonprofits, so for me it is the perfect place to be. Goodwill acutally changed me life because finally I understood what I want to do." -Raniya
