Byronnn Posted April 15, 2010 Report Share Posted April 15, 2010 So I've been trying to find new interesting volunteer opportunities, and one that I'm in the process of starting is a position at the Vancouver Crisis Prevention Centre. I filled out the online application, attended and 'information session', and the next step is the interview that I have tomorrow. My biggest worry is that I'm 18 years old and have not yet experienced the 'real world'. During the information session I noticed that nearly everyone was several years older and much more accomplished than I. I tend to bite off more than I can chew, then chew it like a champ. I like to feel accomplished. Honestly that's been my motivation for most things I've done so far in life. The problem that this has created is that I'm not very good at answering personal questions about my experiences and how they've shaped me. I think that it's very likely that this interview will show me as very bland and naive. Perhaps I am, but that is largely why I want a volunteer position such as this one - to gain actual life experience. Understandably, I don't want to tell them that this is my main reason for applying. If anyone has any confidence-instilling responses, I'd be glad to hear them.
