Today’s post comes from Emily, one of the directors at LiveUp San Diego!
This year will be my fourth LiveUp, and my second time as a director. I’m so excited to come back and be reunited with my LiveUp family in San Diego! Without a doubt, LiveUp is one of my most favorite places in the world. There is a certain electric energy that cannot be replicated anywhere else. Last year at LiveUp San Diego a question began to float around. Why do we LiveUp? Why do we as volunteers and participants choose to spend our time at a LiveUp Program?
For me, this answer is simple. LiveUp is the only place I have found where you can be completely surrounded by genuinely good people, who all want each other to grow and succeed. In a world that can be so dark, LiveUp is a light that shines only on the good. It’s something that has had a tremendous impact on my life and something I feel so lucky to be a part of!
