Viewing the World as a Whole

Joe Wolf


July 10, 2012

My name is Joseph Wolf, and I am an 18-year-old high school graduate from Pine City, Minnesota.   I have been heavily involved with school and local government.  I was the senior class president, director on the local chamber of commerce, a student representative on the local planning commission, and a volunteer in my community.  I have always had a passion for making a difference in the community in which I live, whether in 4-H, National Honors Society, or volunteering for the Minnesota Historical Society.  I also have a passion for traveling and meeting new people.  I have traveled to Europe for a band and choir trip, to Chicago for a church mission trip, to Michigan for a leadership camp, and to Europe again for my German class trip.  With these experiences already under my belt, I am ready to take on a new challenge, Senegal!

Mahatma Ghandi once said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”  I am so excited to be a part of the Global Citizen Year program.  This program will not only change may life, it will help me make a difference in a community on the other side of the world.  Being involved in this program will expand my knowledge and influence my perception as I view the world as a whole.
