I am a Junior at Cypress Bay High school and I have been volunteering for LSA for the past year and a half.

 LSA has helped me share my love of tennis with kids with autism and developmental needs.

I have volunteered at two different LSA program locations in Plantation and Pompano Beach, where I have helped many joyful, determined kids play tennis. It has been a very fulfilling experience for me to connect with these kids. And I have been delighted that they look forward to seeing me every week!

No matter what type of circumstance these kids may have, they always show up and have fun playing tennis. That is the reason I love working with LSA.

I am currently working to raise awareness of LSA at my city’s community events, Tennis clubs and working with school clubs and my friends to organize events to promote LSA. I am also encouraging my tennis buddies to sign-up as volunteers so they too can enjoy the rewarding experience of being a LSA volunteer!

It is an honor to be a student ambassador for Love Serving Autism. My position allows me to share my knowledge of the autistic community to the world. I have used my platform to start a club at my school, American Heritage Delray. We connect our members with weekly volunteering opportunities with LSA and spread awareness about autism amounts adults and children. The topic of autism does not have to be uncomfortable; we are all one community in this world. This is a message I am passionate about and being an ambassador lets me voice this to all who will listen.

I am serving as a student leadership ambassador for Love Serving Autism because I am passionate about raising awareness for autism and supporting individuals with autism spectrum disorder. This opportunity allows me to combine my passion for helping others with my desire to raise awareness about autism.  I believe that through active initiatives, such as the many tennis lessons we help get volunteers for, we can really make a change and create an inclusive and support environment for all those in need.

Being part of Love Serving Autism also gives me a platform to collaborate with like-minded individuals who share the same commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of those affected by autism. Together, we can work towards breaking down barriers, promoting understanding, and fostering a culture of empathy and inclusion.

I have been a volunteer coach with Love Serving Autism since 9th grade. The profound connection I have developed with the organization has inspired me to take the next step and establish the Love Serving Autism Tennis Club at my school, American Heritage Broward Campus. Our club aims to provide a distinctive platform for our members, allowing them to channel their tennis skills and passion towards making a positive impact on individuals with autism and developmental challenges. 

Taking on the role of a student ambassador for Love Serving Autism, I am honored to contribute to the organization’s growth and expansion. Together, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of those with autism and developmental challenges, while simultaneously fostering a community that understands and embraces diversity.
