Iwas never that type of kid. You know the type, the ones who are really sweet and volunteer for all those special-needs programs. The girls who give up their summers of fun to work as counselors for kids with special needs. That was never me. Not because I’m not a nice girl. I definitely am. I’m even chesed head in school! It just never even occurred to me to try it. So some of my friends took special kids on outings or worked with autistic kids; I packed boxes for Tomchei Shabbos. No big deal.
