The language of empathy is not spoken. It is found in the small gestures of kindness, the slightly awkward first encounters, and the smile that says I see you and I am here for you. Throughout my service term, I have learned a lot about real-world empathy. I have gained a deeper understanding beyond the textbook definition that I knew in undergrad.

I try my best to make each day a little better for vulnerable youth. Serving at a place like JASMYN and coming face-to-face with the consequences of everyday cruelty, ignorance, and bigotry makes it impossible for you not to acknowledge the privileges you’ve been given just by virtue of your own birth.

One thing I had hoped to gain from my service term as a National Health Corps Florida AmeriCorps member was techniques on how to better support the people I serve. My experiences with the National Health Corps have equipped me with the skills to develop and implement effective community-based health interventions, a skill I am sure I will carry with me into my future education and career.

I can’t do anything about the complex societal factors making my students “high risk” for violence, and sometimes I feel helpless when I see the barriers preventing me from reaching them. It is frustrating when kids dismiss what I have to say. But even though I can’t change my students’ friends, their schools, their families, or their communities, I can listen. I can answer questions and address doubts. And I can hope they’re listening to me too.

Often times, we take communication for granted. From hearing our alarm clocks telling us that it’s time for us to start our day or being able to tell our family and friends that we love them, communication helps us bond and build community with those around us.
