“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” This quote by Neale Donald Walsch has been my motto to live by over the past few years, and is something I feel adequately defines the experiences as an AmeriCorps member.
My name is Laura Nutty and I am currently serving as an AmeriCorps VISTA member with Hands On Charlotte in Charlotte, North Carolina. Last year, I served with AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) in the Pacific Region. The year before that I served as an AmeriCorps State and National member in Rochester, New York. My decision to serve in AmeriCorps was largely based on the fact that I did not know what I wanted to do after graduating college, and I was so unsure of myself and what career option I wanted to pursue.
