The first Spotlight of the semester focuses on Arturo Esteve who is a fourth-year majoring in Philosophy and Government and somehow is finding time to minor in German. Arturo is a native Argentine who developed his passion for community service from his father. Putting his personal creed into a few lines, “We never achieve things by ourselves and ourselves only, and because of that it is our duty as people to give back to our communities.”
Arturo has a number of leadership and member positions in organizations which he has consistently been a part of for his years here. This year he is one of two chairs for St. Baldrick’s which is the UVA chapter of a national organization that raises funds toward childhood cancer research. Additionally, Arturo is a brother in the national, co-ed service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega. His commitments to this organization include volunteering several times a week; regularly at an organization that sends book to inmates and also at different locations each Saturday morning with all the other brothers in APO. Finally, Arturo is also vigorously involved in the Blueprint Emerging Leaders Program, Circle K International, and in the past has participated in an Alternative Spring Break. He says that throughout all of this volunteering, his long-term goal is to make a tangible difference in his community.
