Minds Matter Los Angeles Mentor

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type=”No Line” custom_height=”0″][vc_column_text]

My participation in Minds Matter gave me the opportunity to help a promising young man articulate his unique story of growing up a bi-racial male in South Los Angeles. Once he was able to articulate who he was, it was about helping him to find the right types of experiences—summer programs, after-school programs, tutoring—that would set him up to be able to tell his story to college admissions officers. Now that Brandon is off to college, I expect mentorship will mean periodic phone calls, and visits over lunch or coffee to talk about potential internships, classes and jobs he is considering to set himself up for success in law school and beyond. I look forward to being a part of Brandon’s life for decades to come and expect that, before too long, I will be the one coming to Brandon for life and career advice. I look forward to that day with anticipation.”
