What brought you to FRIENDS FIRST?

I was really encouraged to see the uplifting mission of FRIENDS FIRST and the culture it fosters among both staff and those the organization serves. I’m looking forward to what we can accomplish together!


How has a mentor impacted your life? 

I’ve been very fortunate to have had many family, friends, and adults outside my family who have mentored me at various points in my life. I wouldn’t be where I am now without the adults who have invested their time and caring into my well-being and progress. I can never repay them, but I can pay it forward.
