What brought you to FRIENDS FIRST?

My friend April asked that I help chaperone at the Stars National Conference. I showed up not knowing what to expect, and I fell in love with the students and the program. Friends First is giving me the opportunity to get into schools and tell students that they are valued and valuable.

How has a mentor impacted your life? 

My mentors have challenged me, taught me, been patient with me, hugged me when I was hurt and nudged me when I was wrong.
