THE STORY:

Family and Friends,

As many of you know, I have been apart of the iMentor organization for the last two years. Back in 2009, I was blessed with the opportunity to become David De La O’s mentor. As I embarked on this journey, I asked myself, why I wanted to be a mentor, it became apparent that throughout my life there have been many individuals who made a direct impact on my life as a child, teenager and now as an adult. Therefore I thought, if I could inspire and hopefully influence the life of someone else this trend could catch on. Based upon our interests, hobbies and personality, David and I became a match. David is currently a senior at the Bronx Preparatory Charter School, which is located in the South Bronx. David's family migrated from El Salvador following the civil war and they currently reside in the Bronx. David enjoys soccer and most importantly he values the relationships he has with his family and friends.

When I first met David, he was very shy and quiet kid, but after chatting for a few minutes he opened up and this is where the story began. When I asked him where he wanted to go to college. He did not think college was an option for him. One year later, David is on track to graduate this spring and he has been accepted into multiple colleges and he is waiting to hear back from a few more. It has been a great opportunity to be apart of David's life.

Thank you all for your help! I appreciate your dedication and commitment to making a difference in the lives of others.

More on iMentor:

iMentor was founded in 1999 by hedge-fund manager John Griffin (Blue Ridge Capital), and two civil rights attorneys, Rich Buery and Matt Klein.  The program began with 49 students in one school in the South Bronx. In just over ten years of operation, iMentor has provided mentors to more than 5,000 young people from over 30 NYC schools and after school programs. Annually, iMentor serves 1,800+ young people from some of New York City's most under-served and low income communities.
