Minds Matter of the Twin Cities Alumna
Two and half years ago I was only a sophomore with a dream. I knew I wanted to somehow participate in politics. Today, I have the means of achieving that. Minds Matter gave that to me. Minds Matter has impacted my life in so many ways, I’ll never be able to reciprocate. During my first year, I was able to grow as a writer. I finally became comfortable with my voice within my writing. I also improved my math skills, which had a great impact on my GPA at school. I appreciate Minds Matter most because of their support. Minds Matter understands that support is something that every student needs to succeed. We have more than just our mentors: we have a whole team. Any time I achieve anything (and I really do mean anything!) I have 20+ people to email who I know are beyond proud of me. It’s taught me to really care about all people and to support and help anyone I can. Those are skills I’ll definitely utilize in politics. Minds Matter’s impact will forever resonate in my life.
