Hi, my name is Ben. I am a student at Ryerson University studying Electrical Engineering. I have been a part of the Ryerson Love Your Neighbour (LYN) club since 2012. I joined this club back in my freshman year. I found out more about the purpose of LYN and its work after joining a couple of their events. And after I learned about LYN’s meaningful work, I decided to get involved in LYN’s family and their work to make a difference in the local and global community. I want to share an experience I got from joining one of the events during last year. Last school year, one of our event we did was we visited the Mon Sheong senior home and did performances and games with the elders. I was “lucky” and got selected to be a part of the performances team. My performance was to sing a classic Chinese song to the elders with my partner. I was extremely nervous in the beginning, because I’ve never showcase my “talent” before in my life (Because I have none…). But I have no other choice when I was on the stage, so I continued with my performance. About half way through my performance, I started to notice smile on some elder’s face, then I felt less nervous due to their affirmation. Through this experience, I realized how meaningful our work is. Not only we bring smiles on people’s face, but their smiles are also bringing changes to our self at the same time.
