What attracted you to SA Youth? What attracted me to SA Youth is the program itself. When I was a SA Youth student I always enjoyed the help from my mentor. Whenever I needed help with any of my academics they were always there to help me and that's something I enjoy with my students I seeing them succeed with their grades.
How will your past experience further the mission of SA Youth? As a former SA Youth student, I always admired the way I was helped and cared for during the out of school time. As for me, I would like to be that person for these students.
What impact are you hoping to have on the organization and our mission? The impact I'm hoping to have on this organization and mission is the connection with the students. I want the students to know that even when they feel like they have no one, they will always have me in any situation they stumble on.
Icebreaker. Favorite food? Favorite memory? Favorite Movie? Favorite Sports Team? My favorite food - Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza. Favorite memory - When my husband and I moved into our first home together. Favorite Movie - Mighty Joe Young, about a gorilla who was saved by helpful humans from poachers after his mother passed away.
Favorite charity to give to and why? Favorite charity to give to is SA Youth because I know it goes back to the students. And also love giving stuffed animals to the NICU babies as a comfort item.
