Why does he volunteer for CEU?
CEU, for me, always seemed like a microcosm of the world. With so many countries’ and continents’ folx coming together under one roof, it truly espouses the idea of the global family. Over the years, many of us former CEU mates have met up in different corners of the world. Volunteering for CEU especially as a Chapter Leader in South Africa will allow me to connect to the larger CEU family that’s here in South Africa, and perhaps, even other parts of the African continent!
