Medical student in the United Kingdom, having previously studied Biology at A-Level. I spend a good deal of my time volunteering with St John Ambulance, which I find fantastically rewarding and when I'm not writing essays I'm handling flags here on Bio.SE.

Purely anecdotally it stirs empathy in peers so could lead to protection from other members of the group when an individual is vulnerable.
