Meet Kristin Sohn! She has been volunteering for GiGi’s Playhouse Des Moines for over 4 years! Kristin started off as a tutor for a couple years but then in winter 2016 she needed more volunteer hours for a college class, so she helped with GiGi University and has been a consistent volunteer with University ever since!
“Hello! My name is Kristin Sohn and I volunteer at Gigi’s while attending nursing school at Mercy
College of Health Sciences. Currently, I tutor and help the mentors with the GiGi Studio. My favorite thing about Gigi’s Playhouse is that each person here has his or her own individualized personality. I feel like sometimes in society everyone is concerned about fitting in and following a certain trend, which molds their personality to be like one another. However, at Gigi’s Playhouse every individual is his or her true self and it makes the atmosphere unique and creates an inviting community. Since moving away for college, Gigi’s Playhouse has become my home away from home.”
We want to say thank you to Kristin and our countless number of volunteers. With your time and dedication we are able to turn belief in our children into real life achievement and acceptance!
