“No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted” (Aesop)
Soon after arriving in Canada, Yolanda volunteered with the 2013 IncomeTax Clinic at the Neighborhood Center and found it beneficial in many ways.
I may not have received a monetary reward, but I enjoyed the intrinsic reward of helping those of low to no income prepare their taxes. It was a good feeling to hear them say thank you with a smile. Being a tax volunteer also allowed me to network, learn about different tax situations, and make constructive use of my down time. I would recommend becoming a volunteer as it enhanced skills for my career development.
Yolanda is now working full-time in the investment industry. Congratulations!
