Join me and Team Brooklyn International High School as part of iMentor’s Online Donor Drive 2013!
I joined iMentor in October this year, and was matched with Bixia, a Chinese student at the Brooklyn International High School. She's a fantastic individual and I'm enjoying getting to know her. We want to raise $1000 to support one pair for the next school year - will you help us?
Last week, Bixia and I got together and took these pictures :) and she told me why iMentor is so important for her: "iMentor is good and helpful to have someone to talk to, to share your secrets with! Also, to learn something new and have someone who will explain new things to me is very helpful. It's good for helping me look to my future and figure out what my future might look like - what the options are!"
The last picture you see here is Bixia's drawing of her life's path - I had to do one too! It's clipped here (you can see the full pic on my fb page), but you can still tell that she is totally motivated to go to college and is hoping to be a nurse.
My job is to help her navigate her junior year, with all of the stress and strain of preparing for the college application process, and to broaden her horizons - essentialluy to help her dream big and make those dreams a reality!
Both Bixia and I think it's iMentor is a fantastic program and a wonderful resource for high school students like Bixia. Please consider helping us make this program available for more students like Bixia next year.
