This past year I have joined the Minds Matter volunteer program. Education is extremely important to me because I see it as one of the most rewarding things we can do for oursevles and our future. Education helps to open doors and grant opportunities we may not have considered before. Through Minds Matter, we are helping high school students who may otherwise not have the opportunities to access college level education. This year, I have a sophomore mentee who I will be mentoring for the next three years. She is exteremly intelligent and hard working. I look forward to the next three years of helping her achieve success and work towards her future educational goals.
