Lives Transformed
“My mentor has changed my life completely. Before I always felt like I was the one behind, in the back, forgotten, and not important. She has given me more confidence. Now I’m positive, more outgoing, and not afraid to fail. Now I speak up, I’m in the spotlight, I’m involved. She let me know there are people who care and want to help. She was the person for me who changed everything.”
