What brought you to FRIENDS FIRST? I worked in a peer mentoring program for a couple of years before joining Friends First, and I loved it! Friends First was a perfect place to continue with that work.
How has a mentor impacted your life? My mentor consistently helped me prove to others and to myself that I can overcome serious obstacles and achieve all of my goals. Because of my mentor, I am a more confident, capable person.
