"I want to teach others that volunteering and giving back to our community is worth so much more than we can imagine, especially in the long run. GlamourGals has instilled in me the joy of helping others and I want to pass that on to my future patients."
"It is clear to me now that creating meaningful bonds with others is what I want to do with my life. GlamourGals has created a difference in my own attitude, personality, and perspective. I am now more gregarious, proactive, and open-minded than I have ever been before because of the experiences I've had."
"I like to volunteer because my job doesn’t involve meeting members of my community. It feels grounding to meet people that I may just pass on the street and would never meet otherwise. Getting up in the morning or going after work to serve others gives me energy and makes me feel like a part of my community, and I’ve met new friends while volunteering."
"It is important for us to visit these senior citizens so that they know that they are not alone and that we appreciate all that they have done for us throughout their lives. These seniors are a vital part of our community; they have experience in life and wisdom. I learned from GlamourGals that senior citizens are great examples of role models."
"GlamourGals has served as a new canvas for me to sketch out and explore different career opportunities. I am always reminded of how my early introduction to art by my grandmother has impacted my life. And now, something as simple as a manicure -- adding a touch of art on a person’s hand -- and a few minutes to engage in conversation, can have such significance."
"Being able to cure degenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s would make me more than ecstatic. These individuals have lived the best years of their lives and experienced so many memories and hold so much knowledge, and this disease just robs them of that. If I decide not to do research, it would be my honor to look after the elderly and provide them with the support and treatment to make their lives as comfortable as possible till the end."
