As many of you know, I have had a privilege to be a mentor to a young and accomplished student Bukky since 2011. Over the past years, we have built a strong bond and became close friends. We shared our international backgrounds, love of education and career goals as a foundation for our relationship and today we focus on Bukky’s academic success and internship opportunities.
Bukky is currently a sophomore at Binghamton University where she majors in Math, participates in the Educational Opportunity Program and serves as a Treasurer of the African Student Organization. She is a thoughtful, mature and caring young woman with an ambition to pursue a career in finance and run her own company one day. I have no doubt that Bukky’s work-ethic, tenacity and passion will help her accomplish these goals.
It has been an incredible journey for us since the very first time we met and we continue to build upon our experiences and support each other’s aspirations. Bukky and I are thrilled to share our story with the friends and supporters of the organization and we hope you can join us in celebrating iMentor’s commitment to education by contributing to this wonderful organization.
