I enjoy participating in the communities around me as an active and friendly member. I build relationships with those with whom I work and live. Additionally I think that one way we can all contribute to making the world a better place is to try to live in a way that sets an example (“be the change you wish to see in the world”), and (in line with that) by leaving places (or groups/organizations) better than we found them.
