What was your most meaningful service experience?

Serving with the National Association for the Prevention of Starvation (N.A.P.S.) allowed me to work in a community in Mississippi, providing educational support to the students and educational, economic assistance to the community. I found it elating to see how people light up with understanding and newfound knowledge of how they accomplish their goals.
