"Community service allows me to make a greater impact on the people around me. The We Cancerve Movement, Inc. gives me countless opportunities to make these impacts. The work I do with We Cancerve give me the satisfaction of knowing that even though I am only one person, I can help countless others."
Cameron Hobbs, 17, is a member of the all-youth board of advisors of the We Cancerve Movement, Inc. His first event with We Cancerve was in 2015 at Harford Family House. He returned to helping the organization at 2018 We Cancerve Camp Happy. He joined the all-youth board of advisors in 2019 and has since worked on the projects of Eggstra Special Easter Bags-kits, 2019 We Cancerve Camp Happy, and The Winter Wonderland Party for Department of Social Service.
Cameron’s passion for community service started in middle school as a We Cancerve Movement, Inc. volunteer. He attended an event devoted to preparing transitional housing for homeless families to move in to.
“Being only a young child, I didn’t understand why some people did not have a house. I thought that a house was just something everyone received. It wasn’t until years later that I realized I have access to a lot of things that others do not. After that realization, I wanted to do all I could to ensure that everyone was put in the best position to succeed no matter their situation”
Cameron continued his community service journey as an ambassador at the 2018 Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership Conference in Frederick, Maryland. He learned tactics for leadership, teamwork, and cooperation to bring to all service events. He returned the next year as a member of Team Alumni to ensure that the year’s seminar was as impactful for the new set of ambassadors as it was for him.
In his spare time, Cameron enjoys sports, robotics, and music. He plays golf and baseball for Aberdeen High School. He is a member of Team 3941 in the FIRST Robotics Competition and a SeaPerch Underwater Robotics participant. He also plays the guitar and bass.
