Maria Emee M. Nisnisan is being honored as a Champion of Change for her work with providing health care for underprivileged people and volunteer opportunities for families.
Service has always been a part of my life – my parents showed me what it was to volunteer by including me in their activities in whatever capacity I was capable of at that age. As a mother, I want to instill the “We Serve” attitude within my children, which is why I started the Houston Royal Oaks Lions Club. We seek ways to improve our community. At a recent health fair my club hosted at a local school, my children helped entertain other kids while their parents received diabetes screenings and their siblings underwent eye exams.
I am very proud to be a Lion. Education is the key to empowerment and through my Lions club, I use my skills as a registered nurse to provide healthcare access to underserved populations. Working together, we are in a better position to create change through our global network of family and friends.
Maria Emee M. Nisnisan of Sugar Land, Texas, has been a member of the Houston Royal Oaks Lions Club since 2004.
