THE STORY:

As many of you know, I am a mentor to a New York City high school student through iMentor. iMentor provides students in low-income communities with mentors who are dedicated to helping them succeed in college and beyond.

I’ve had the great opportunity to be matched with Miguel Ramos for the past 2+ years. Miguel is a freshmen at City Tech (aka New York City College of Technology for y'all out-of-towners). Miguel still loves video games and candy (some things never change), but he's working hard, holding down a work-study job and was even an assistant soccer coach for his high school alma mater. 

It has been amazing watching him grow and mature and I am proud to have this opportunity to let you into my world as a mentor. This year, Miguel and I have been working on successfully making the transition to college. We've worked through issues like finding a major, time management (between school and work), and remembering to have fun and enjoy the experience.

Miguel's goal is to finish college and find a career in the video game industry. I have watched as his focus and ambition have grown during out time as a pair. It's been incredibly rewarding for me to watch this talented young man grow both personally and processionally and to know that I've played a part.

Please sponsor my commitment to Miguel by donating to my page today. It costs $1,000 per year to support each pair and ensure they have access to quality curriculum, programming, technology, and resources. Every contribution will help support more mentor-mentee pairs like Miguel and me.

Dr. Doom

Dr. Doom

Despite my reputation, above all, I am a humanist. Go forth and prosper. Even Doom finds mentoring to be a worthwhile endeavor. I demand that you donate to this fundraiser or else you shall face the wrath of Doom. Show me the puny mortal who does not tremble at the name of Doctor Doom! Dare defy me? Such insolence will not go unpunished! 3 years ago
