Hi everyone, Liqiong here.
This is my first time in the US and I've now been in Minnesota for four months. I've been enjoying everything here sooooo far.
There is a question that I would like to ask all of you guys. After I came here, I found volunteering in the US to be very common and popular, not only among students but also some adults.
What a different situation compared with China! We don't do much volunteer work, everyone doesn't have the awareness to volunteer. I also heard from you guys that you started to do volunteer work since you were very young.
I would like to ask why people think volunteering is so popular in the US. Or what sort of things did you consider whenever you decide to do volunteer work?
