Name: Saniya Shah

Property: Wicklow Square, Dublin

Why did you chose to volunteer with Eden Housing? I chose to volunteer with Eden Housing because I genuinely like the work that they do. I think they work for an admirable cause and it's something I definitely wanted to be a part of.

What have you done as a volunteer?  Please describe your role and what you have worked on.  As a volunteer, I have taught seniors several different and unique art projects and techniques. For instance, we did paintings, drawings, dotting art, and other forms of abstract art as well.

What have you learned through your volunteer experience?  Have there been any surprises? I have learned a lot about interacting with numerous different people. Volunteering at Eden Housing allows me to interact with both seniors and adults, which I wouldn’t otherwise be able to do (and I love that I get to interact with so many different people).

What do you like best about volunteering with Eden Housing? The best part about volunteering with Eden Housing is the atmosphere and the people that I’m surrounded by. Everyone is so kind and enthusiastic. It creates a positive and happy environment.

Are there any tips that you would share for someone else who is considering volunteering? A tip I would share with someone who is considering volunteering is to go for it. If you’re passionate about something, volunteer because you'll be making a positive impact in some way.

Tell us something we may not know about you. Any interesting facts you’d like to share about your life? I am currently a junior at Dougherty Valley High School. Several of my hobbies include drawing and painting, photography, writing, and traveling. Something you may not know about me is that I can speak 5 languages.
