Why did you join the Student Philanthropy Council?

I joined the SPC because I saw it as an opportunity to give back to my society and spread an appreciation for philanthropic work. If it weren’t for the generosity of our school donors, I would have probably struggled to afford tuition and it would have taken me much more time to graduate. So, SPC was a perfect fit for me, where I can work on educating other students about the importance of philanthropy and giving back.
