Mentorship Matters


My mentee is wonderful and she reminds me so much of myself because she is a strong outspoken individual  that loves to smile behind the pain. She loves to eat and have fun with her Family and Friends.

This is a memorable photo because it was our first outing together. We were headed to enjoy her first painting session.


"Success isn’t about how much money you make; it’s about the difference you make in people’s lives.”—Michelle Obama


My mentee  is an amazing young lady that shows strength mentally, physically and emotionally. She keeps a positive attitude and doesn't complain one bit.  No excuses will do when it comes to stand in her world. There is nothing that can stop her and I am proud of her. In this picture we are at the Gala celebrating the girls for all their hard work. 


“One of the greatest values of mentors is the ability to see ahead what others cannot see and to help them navigate a course to their destination.”

-John C. Maxwell


My mentee is absolutely remarkable. Over the course of a year I’ve watched her stand proud of the lady she is becoming. She’s smart, funny, talented, and her passion is strong. I absolutely love it! She’s really pulling the stings and winning. I’m so proud of her and can’t wait to see what the next years will bring. We were at Beauty Marks for Girls first annual Gala. I watched my mentee dance to Rise Up by Andra Day.

 It wasn’t a dry eye in the building.
