One of my most favorite memories of being a Life Course Scholar was coordinating the Living, Creating and Striving HAP with my colleagues. This was a huge undertaking, but we were able to work under pressure and adapt to obstacles that could have impeded us from achieving our goals. I found our HAP event to be quite memorable because that was when I was able to interact with many Pacific Islanders and Pilipina seniors at the Center.
For future LCSers, I hope y’all take the opportunity to interact with as many seniors as you can. This program is such a great way to interact with many senior communities throughout San Diego. Moreover, this program is a great way for you to give back, while learning more about an extremely underrepresented (and perhaps even marginalized) community.
