What is your favorite quote? "Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change we seek." - Barack Obama

How long have you been a member of DonCARES of Philadelphia?

Fall semester 2018

What advice do you have for prospective mentors?

My advice is simple...Do it! I have learned so much about myself from mentoring, and it has made me a better person. You are also able to positively impact someones life and watch them grow. Mentoring for me is constant motivation.

What do you like most about DonCARES?

I like that we get to talk to our men-tees in our own way, we do not have to be formal (which is usually a turn off for a lot of kids), we are just people that these kids can talk to and have a relationship with.

What is your proudest moment at DonCARES?

My proudest moment has to be getting featured with Donovan on CBS Philly.

What has being in a mentoring relationship taught you about yourself?

It has taught me that you never know how much you will impact someones life just from simply listening to them. Everyone needs someone to talk to and it has motivated me to make connections with my own set of mentors.
