Volunteer Spotlight: Paige A.

In this week’s Volunteer Spotlight, we’d like to introduce you to Paige A.

I have been volunteering as an Exhibit Guide since the beginning of this summer 2016. My favorite place to volunteer is Health Quest, as I hope to pursue a career in medicine. I try to volunteer as often as I can, though my big family makes it fairly difficult. Ever since I was a little kid, I remember wanting to help at the Science Center. The first thing I wanted to do was help with the animals, because I really wanted to hold the hedgehog. After that I put volunteering on my bucket list, and when I heard about the teen program, I signed up immediately. Bucket list item complete!
When I was a little kid, I went to the Science Center all the time, and I practically know the place by heart. I remember running around the museum, saying, “I remember that! I remember that!” By the end of the day, I’d be carrying a picture of a dinosaur, tired and happy. When I walk into the Science Center now, I find myself hearing the balls dropping in the atrium, wanting to run around the place like I did then, and feeling a sense of happiness that I don’t get from anywhere else. It makes me truly happy to bring that kind of joy to little kids so that one day, they can have a special place like I do here at the Greensboro Science Center.
