Please help me reach my goal in supporting iMentor! With your help we can make a lasting impact on our local NYC community by helping more students attend and graduate from college.
I was inspired to join iMentor in 2011 after seeing the strong relationship of an iMentor mentor and mentee pair. I was matched with my mentee, Rose, shortly after and we've had a very close relationship over the past four years. We stressed out over her SATs together, discussed the pros and cons of attending college near and far from her home, and talk about everything from current events to the latest movies.
iMentor provided us with a clear structure for the college application process and provided the guidance and resources we needed to make the experience more manageable. Having gone through the process side-by-side, I was ecstatic when Rose was accepted to her top choice college. She is now a sophomore pursuing a nursing degree.
