Hi. My name is Melissa Mallian and I am a junior at Elon University. This weekend was my first time volunteering with Special Olympics, and I really enjoyed it. It was great to see how hard the athletes work, and how proud they are of themselves and each other during the competitions. I was paired up with a very successful group, and I admit that it was very emotional watching them receive their medals after they competed. I loved making friends with the athletes, and helping them out as they got ready to compete.
