I am a changemaker because I am a student leader for service club on campus.
I believe that because we, as college students, have each been given such amazing resources and opportunities, we have a responsibility to serve those that have not had the same chances. I enjoy sharing my passion for service with all members of ASU’s Circle K International club.
Major: Communication and Global studies
I am a changemaker because I am involved saving lives through with Relay for Life.
Being a part of a group that focuses on change is something that truly gets me excited because it is fun to work past those challenges.

I am a changemaker because I want to inspire every student to be engaged in their community through the power of voting.
I believe that this world will be at its best when we all realize our potential to create change. I want to help people discover their passions and pursue their dreams. This will in turn make the world a better place for future generations! My life's goal is to help others become more civically engaged. I hope to reform political journalism and change the way people think about politics and government.

Campus: Tempe and Downtown
I am a changemaker because I volunteer during alternative spring break trips.
I love the feeling I get when I see someone benefit from an action I decided to take, even if it’s as little as putting a smile on someone's face. I have been blessed with the proper resources, support, and opportunities to improve the lives of others and feel I would not be fulfilling my purpose if I did not utilize what I have been given to make a positive impact. I want to see the world reach its potential- and I feel that my role within Changemaker is a small step I can personally take to speed up that process.

I am a changemaker because I founded a local chapter of an organization that fights extreme poverty and preventable diseases.
I do what I do because as a student leader, I believe in the power of the student voice. I was one of eight college students who received an internship through Chegg for Good and ONE, an organization. My internship afforded me the opportunity travel to Africa and see first-hand their challenges. Upon returning, I founded a local chapter of ONE here at ASU.
Major: Film and Media Production
I am a changemaker because I started a local chapter of an organization that works to ensures all babies are born healthy.
I founded the ASU chapter of March of Dimes because I believe in the mission of this organization that works to prevent premature births.
Major: Finance (Minor in Nonprofit Administration and Certificate in International Business)
I am a changemaker because I work for a nonprofit that helps turn ideas into successful and purposeful ventures.
I believe I was created for a purposeful life and the human interactions in every realm of my life inspire me to do the things I think I cannot do.
Major: Biological Sciences
I am a changemaker because am a student mentor that helps other students succeed.
The last two years I have been a Mentor in the Barrett Mentor Program. I like to assist and be a role model for others whenever I can, and this program has allowed me to do just that. In retrospect, there are certain things that I wish had been exposed to or obstacles that I would have preferred to have some guidance in overcoming. I'm satisfied with my duties if I am able to provide some insight, advice, or simply a listening ear for undergraduate students that are making the challenging transition into college and have the additional struggle of maintain their status as an honors student.
Major: Special Education with a History minor
Campus: West Campus
I am a changemaker because I am studying to be a teacher who will inspire children to make a difference in their communities.
As a future teacher, I love inspiring children to grow up and make a difference in their community in any way they can. I know there are many ASU students who have great ideas but don’t know where to go for them and Changemaker Central will be there to give them that start.
