Future Business Leaders of America members volunteered at the H-E-B’s 32nd Annual Holiday Feast of Sharing Event.
It had been two years since the FBLA club had volunteered at the Feast of Sharing due to the pandemic. Their duty was to clean-up after the dinners were served to the community.
FBLA member Andrea Gomez offered to volunteer at the Feast of Sharing as it was their first volunteer experience.
“I think the event went really well,” Gomez said. “What really made me want to volunteer in this event was that I can get some community hours, and it gave me the chance to give back to my community.”

Jaymee Gomez Gives An Insight Into Her Extracurricular Activities

This entry is part 11 of 14 in the series RedWolves in the Wild

Extracurricular activities allow students to shine outside academics, as it has done for sophomore Jaymee Gomez, Jewelette, and basketball players at La Joya High School.

“I like being in extracurriculars because they allow me to shine outside academics. I can meet new people through both of those programs and try different things,” said Gomez.

Gomez said that she considers herself a leader and likes to put herself in roles where she can lead; for example, she is an officer in Jewelettes and a captain in basketball.

“It helps me be more structured in a way, even though sometimes it’s hectic, it helps me become the person I am,” said Gomez.

Gomez said that even though it’s helpful, it gets very timely, making it very hard to stay on top of certain things.

“Like last weekend, I went to Corpus, and I was out for three days for basketball; it was kind of hard to make sure that all my assignments were done, but I feel that if anything, it just pushes me to try harder and better myself, and mold myself into a better person academically that way I’m able to be the person that I need to be on the court and in the dance room,” said Gomez.

Gomez said that if someone were to join these activities, they would have to know what they are getting into, especially the type of commitment it is if they already do UIL.

“It’s a little bit less time than if you have to go to practice every day at La Joya or if you have to walk to a different school to go and practice,” said Gomez.

Gomez said that if someone were to do an extracurricular activity, they would have to know what’s right for them and how much they can offer to that club.
