How do you stay busy outside of work?

Carmen: Outside of work, I’m very involved in volunteer work. I teach Sunday school at my church, which is incredibly rewarding. Recently, I’ve also started volunteering at an orphanage called “Bethesda” across the border. I’ve taken on the responsibility of providing essential items like clothing, shoes, school supplies, and gifts for the children there. It’s a cause that’s close to my heart, and I feel privileged to be able to make a difference in their lives.
