Thoughts from student presenter Aska Gutierrez

"Service-Learning Day was a great experience for me. It gave me the opportunity to present my work as well as the work of other Interior Design students. Our exhibit consisted of models and inspiration boards for Maluhia Care Center, the L. Robert Allen Montessori Preschool, and Surfing the Nations (charity organization in Wahiawa). It was wonderful  knowing that we can share our inspirations and ideas with so many people participating in the service-learning programs as well as outside guests. It not only gave me a chance to educate people about our projects but also helped me learn more about others' work in the community. As a first time presenter I didn't know what to expect, but with help from the Service-Learning Office, it became an easy and pleasant experience. It definitely helped me develop certain skills necessary for interaction with the general public, which is a must in my major. Being a presenter during Service-Learning Day was a wonderful learning experience that helped me put my work out there."
