THE STORY:

Hello family and friends!

Many of you know that I’ve been working at iMentor for the past two years. This year, I have the great fortune of working individually with my own mentee, Nikkole, through the program as well.

Nikkole is a 9th grade student at the High School for Innovation in Advertising and Media in Canarsie, Brooklyn. We’ve been matched for 3 months and are already planning a trip to a dance show together! We both appreciate music of all genres; want to learn how to salsa dance; and value being loyal and dependable to the people in our lives. Nikkole wants to become a pediatrician, and this year, she is working to improve her grades in math and to start a dance club at her school, all while she continues to support her nieces and nephews at home. I’ll be there to support her as she pursues all of these goals this year, as well as many more to come over the course of our four-year match!

I dedicate a great deal of my time to iMentor because I believe strongly in the power of mentors to influence lives. Success requires a whole set of skills that nobody teaches in schools – time management, perseverance, social capital, and countless more. Most of us learn these skills informally from opportunities we get outside of school, like piano lessons or a ski trip. But if you’re a kid living in an underserved community, you might not have the resources to access those opportunities. And if you will be the first in your family to go to college, you might not have someone to tell you what college is like and help you imagine yourself there. iMentor matches students with mentors who help them build these skills and prepare for success in the college experience.

Supporting my page helps cover the cost of mentor-mentee pairs across NYC. If you’ve had someone in your life who you look up to or you would consider a mentor, and if you want to make sure every student has that experience, then I hope you will consider making a small donation today!
