Why Jessica’s a HERO: I first joined HEROs with my freshman year roommate because we both wanted to get involved on campus. I’ve always enjoyed working with kids and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to make a difference.
Jessica’s “WOW!” moment: Every moment since being apart of UGA HEROs has been a WOW moment. Each and every event, starting from kickoff, has encouraged me to want to make a bigger impact on the lives of our kids.
The ideal HERO is… outgoing, motivated, and has a kind heart.
Jessica’s advice for new HEROs: Get to know your team! These are the people you will be sharing your first unforgettable HERO experiences with, and having that bond with your team will only make these experiences better. This strong bond will allow you to work better as team to make a difference in the lives of our HERO children.
