Very Humbling

We had some wonderful UW nursing students volunteer at the food bank. I asked them what they thought of their experience and this is what a few of them had to say:

“It is very humbling to see that anyone, all walks of life, can use some help at some time in their life.”

“My parents came from nothing and experiencing and meeting others who came from nothing has given me a glimpse into what my parents went through, also very humbling.”

“I was talking with a mother who was SO Proud that her daughter was able to attend the UW, it is humbling to think about all the sacrifices she must have made. Considering how much my parents have scrimped and scraped to be able to send me to school.”
