b'22springtideresearch.orgAfter buying my first car from a friend, I felt so excited to pay forward the 24 years of car rides Id received. I was particularly eager to pay this forward to new, first-year students through one of the community centers at my university alma mater where, for years, upperclassmen had welcomed me and offered me rides whenever I was in need. The warmth, energy, character, hope, and faith of many before me led me to want to pass these same values and attributes on through this gesture of support. Daniel, 24'
