I joined Minds Matter after reading Adam Grant's book, Give and Take, as part of a leadership development program for work. I saw the impact that having a mentor had on my career and wanted to give back. I am so grateful for the opportunity to be surrounded by such dedicated and caring people. The mentors and mentees are a constant source of inspiration and fun.
I'm thankful to Minds Matter for providing me with the opportunity to help and guide students through the college experience. Coming from a low income household, my family and I received a lot of help but were often overwhelmed by the whole process. As a volunteer, I am able to help students get ready for college using my own experiences while also having access to an awesome network of fellow volunteers.
