What brought you to FRIENDS FIRST?

I heard about FRIENDS FIRST from a former employee. She raved about the supportive and fun culture in the office. The positivity of this organization always makes me want to come to work. I chose FRIENDS FIRST because I connect with the mission of empowering teens to make positive choices. I have experienced the importance of mentors in my life and the lives of those around me.

How has a mentor impacted your life? 

My parents are always my biggest advocates. They always care about my passions and give me unconditional support. They are always seeking to empower me in every possible way. I’ve learned from them what a massive impact a devoted and loving mentor can make.
