I am 22 years old, I live in Richmond Virginia, and am currently enrolled here at VCU. I love to donate blood because even though I don’t have super powers, it is nice to be able to think I am like a hero by donating blood and saving peoples’ lives. The fears I had about giving blood were that the needles would not be clean and I would get a disease. I was assured that all the needles were cleaned and I would not get a disease. After my first time donating blood, I was tired. I didn’t think giving blood could take that much out of you.
