BENEFITING: iMentor

ORGANIZER: iMentor

THE STORY:

Dear Friends & Family:

My current mentee is named Wei Chen. He is in the 12th grade at Lower East Side Prep, a school predominantly attended by children of recent immigrants. Just two years ago, Wei emigrated from China, and now lives in Brooklyn with his parents. He is currently preparing for his Regents exams and aspires to major in computer science or engineering.

Over the past 8 years, all of my mentees have been in the U.S. for a short period of time, having recently emigrated from China. They usually lack advanced English-speaking skills, but more than compensate with an amazing desire to learn academically and culturally, all with optimism beyond compare.

Most of you know by now about iMentor, an organization that I have been fortunate to be a part of for the past 7 years. I initially got involved because I wanted to give back to the community, work with teens, and help bridge the digital divide, and I was impressed that iMentor facilitated all three.  Nine months ago, I decided to join the staff full-time and have enjoyed every minute.

I have a fundraising goal of $4,000, which is the cost to support 4 mentee pairs for the program year. No amount is too little and any support is appreciated!

Thanks for reading this far!

Waine
