Beth's Story

Beth's Story

Remember being a teenager and trying to find your place in this world? Imagine doing that as a brand new member of this country.

Beth emigrated from Ethiopia with her family several years ago, and wanted so badly to fit in and give back to her new community.

“I felt so out of place, but I didn’t know where to start,” Beth recalls.

“Once I started volunteering with Youth United, I met friends and learned that every time I serve, I light up. Volunteering with Youth United gave me a place to belong. It gave me direction.” says Beth.

Today, Beth is active in her community and her high school, and dreams of attending Stanford Law in the future. As a lawyer, Beth wants to serve low-income clients and immigrants. Youth United connected Beth to her new community; a community she will continue to strengthen in the future.
