I had the opportunity to mentor my mentee Taquan for the past 4 years! It has truly been a reqrding experience! It's been great to watch him grow from a boy to a young man.
I have several mentoring relationships but this was one in particular pushed me the most and caused me to be very very patient. I will never forget when we had a tough conversation about grades and his just overall performance. I felt like I was too hard on him and felt really bad. Not knowing that this is exactly what he needed.
Well Taquan, took what I said to heart and applied it. He ended up getting if not the highest one of the highest English Regents scores at his school. We then went to celebrate his grades and regents scores at IHOP. I can go on and on!
I am asking for you to help me raise money so that iMentor can continue helping pairs like Taquan and I!
By the way yes... I am also a staff member at iMentor! :)
Thanks in advance for your giving!
