THE STORY:

Dear Friends & Family:

My current mentee is named Yu Jing Luo. He is in the 12th grade at Lower East Side Prep, a school predominantly attended by children of recent immigrants. Just three years ago, Yu Jing emigrated from China, and now lives in Brooklyn with his parents. He works at a restaurant part-time during the school year, and aspires to graduate high school and attend college.

Over the past 9 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.

While I've been a part of the iMentor community for the past 9 years as a mentor and junior Board member, I joined the staff full-time about two years ago.  It's been an amazing experience, and I'm proud to be part of a team that is dedicated to helping underserved youth graduate from high school and succeed in college.

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!
