Ambitious & Authentic

You want to change the world, and you’re not the only one. 1 in 5 Virginians who volunteered in the past year say the issues we face are so great they have no choice but to act.

Like them, you act because you care — a lot — and it’s important for you to see it through. You love seeing results, which is maybe why you somehow always ended up as the leader in group projects . . .
