WHY I MENTOR: “It’s a way of sharing my own life experience of losing my mother when I was a child. I hope my story will inspire a young girl to realize that in spite of these circumstances, she can leverage it and accomplish or become anything she wants...that it will not define her but will give her the strength and resilience necessary for a fulfilling life. But like anything in life, it is an evolution – and to see what’s on the other side can be the motivation and encouragement needed in the beginning”
