Jessica loves being in Circle K because she is able to meet so many new people who are just as passionate about volunteering and giving back to the community as she is. She is particularly fond of working with Metro Health to help with their Kids Marathon. Jessica can’t wait to meet new members in the district this year!

Anna is a junior at Northwood University who loves being president of Circle K because it isn’t another club, it’s a family… a family that doesn’t just love to serve, but lives to serve. One of the organizations she lives to serve is the SPCA because she loves dogs and being able to help them feel love. Anna is looking forward to hosting DCON this year!

Alison is a Junior at Eastern Michigan University. She loves being a part of Circle K because we are a big family, full of people you can depend on and always have a good laugh with. She loves being president of a club with such diverse members. Her board members have very different majors including history, math, aviation, supply chain, and arts management. Each member brings something different to the table which promotes diversity in membership. Alison looks forward to growing Eastern’s club, participating in more district events and studying abroad in Italy over winter break! An interesting fact about her is that she can make an origami crane/ball in under 2 minutes- we hope to see you do that at one of our district events, Alison!

When asked what she loved about Circle K, this is how Alejandra responded:
“What I love about Circle K is that: Circle K is service. It’s hard not to sound cliché when talking about volunteering. But the truth is, every volunteering event is an eye opening and humbling experience. The people who we serve give back so much more than we could ever give them. We are not saviors or super heroes. We can’t change the whole world just at one volunteering event. We change the world, one day, one person at a time. We change the world by inspiring others to also help in our community.
Circle K is fellowship. When people serve together, you learn a lot about yourself and each other. You form bonds that last a lifetime.
Circle K is leadership. I believe that being a part of this organization helps us become better professionals, better team members, and overall better people. We push each other to be the best versions of ourselves we can possibly be.”
She hit the nail on the head with her explanation, incorporating ideas that everyone mentions when they are asked why they love Circle. We are lucky to have someone as passionate as Alejandra in the district!
