I started volunteering 4 years ago and I am still volunteering since I am in my school’s volunteer’s society. It is my sixth year in The G C School of careers and through its clubs and societies i have benefitted a lot. I am a member of the Science club as well as the Astronomy club. I try to expand my knowledge and experiences of the Science field as much as possible. Hence I did a project on the “Utilization of satellites technology for improved weather forecasts”, which won the title of the project with the most environmental awareness.
