I was 8 years old when my father was attacked and killed near our home. I now volunteer with Through Unity to help other young people who have lost someone close to them through homicide. We help them to share their story, and we hope to deter other young people from going down the path of violence. By doing social action, I have reinforced my own feelings of confidence and self worth. I strive to show people how to be strong and to see that even when one of the worst imaginable things happens, there is still hope!
