Inspire the Future!
"Being a George Ranch Interpretive Teen (GRIT) has given me some incredible leadership experience. In my first summer of volunteering, I began developing my own historical character at the 1890s Davis Victorian Mansion. Since I am Chinese, I researched the history and culture of the Chinese in Texas, and then interpreted this history, using my Chinese clothing as conversational starting point. I have also worked with various members of the Houston Chinese community to incorporate Asian history and culture into the Texian Market Days festival. At the George Ranch Historical Park, we are both upholding legacies and creating our own, and volunteering there is one of the coolest things I could do with my time."
