I believe true service is faceless, and true honor is selfless compassion.

Much of my community service is not recorded in my positions, but in my small, day to day contributions.  For example, in OMEGA, I became an officer because I would step in and help out at events whenever possible.  At BYU, I almost became a member of the Society of Women Engineers by helping out with a number of their events!
