Why did you choose to get involved with DonCARES of Philadelphia, Inc.?


I chose to be involved with DonCARES of Philadelphia, Inc. due to the mission and values the organization has upheld since its beginning. In providing high school students with a guiding figure, I felt that it provides a support system that many did not think they had before. 



How has mentoring work influenced your career decisions? 


I was deeply influenced by the idea of mentorship and how it is an extension of my desired career path in providing educational development towards those who are at a lower risk of postsecondary success. 


How are you spending your summer: 


I am currently spending my summer working within a non-profit that provides academic development and educational opportunities for students within the Philadelphia region 


What impact has your internship had on your development as a black woman and undergraduate student?: 


Working within my internship, I have become accustomed to learning the advantages and disadvantages of the educational system. I feel that I was able to be more conscious of my role and position within society as a black woman who has faced challenges during my developmental years. As I have grown to be empathetic and understanding of others struggles and their resilience towards them. 

Within my undergraduate experience I felt I was able to apply applicable knowledge from the classroom into personal scenarios that occur inside and outside of my internship.
