Thank you for supporting an initiative very important to me! As many of you know, I have been actively associated with iMentor since July 2010 and it has been a noteworthy experience. iMentor is a school-based mentoring program matching public high school students in New York City in one-to-one relationships with college-educated mentors. iMentor's goal is to build mentoring relationships that empower students in low-income communities to graduate high school, succeed in college, and achieve their ambitions.
This is my second year participating on the Online Donor Drive in support of iMentor. My goal this year is to have all my connections help me raise $1,500 in support of iMentor’s amazing platform. I thank you in advance for your support!
Currently, I am mentoring an amazing student, friend and mentee Natasha Solorzano, a senior at KIPP College Prep in Harlem, NYC. I have been matched with Natasha for the last two years helping her navigate through high school and will see her through her college experience. This is a life changing experience for the both of us. We have an amazing bond that centers around honesty, respect and lots of laughter..a perfect match! Natasha is lovable, funny, enjoys playing baseball, and hanging out with her friends. Her career aspiration is to become a nutritionist, which she will study in the fall (awaiting acceptance letters). Yay!
My goal and purpose is to help her birth her dreams. Inspire her to grow, and support her in all her endeavors. I am extremely proud of Natasha and all her accomplishments! The last two years have been challenging for her as she jungles school, sports, family, friends and college admission, but as a trooper she has mastered the art of multi-tasking with ease.
Again, thank you all for visiting my page and taking part of this wonderful initiative! ALL donations make a difference and are appreciated..spread the word!
