It’s hard to believe that this time last year our soon-to-be seniors were navigating the learning curves of online classes for the first time and settling in for one of the most challenging years we’ve collectively faced. Now, here they are, one year later—stronger, wiser, and even more technologically savvy than they were before.
We know that every young person has unique potential and promise within them, and it’s especially inspiring to see our Big Sisters walk alongside their Little Sisters throughout their mentoring relationship to uncover the confidence, strength, and passions that they have carried with them all along. In honor of Women’s History Month, we asked a few of our Little Sisters to share some insight into the impact of mentorship in their lives, women who inspire them, and their hopes and dreams for the future.
As a former Little, current Big, and Davidson County police officer, Edward is a strong advocate for youth mentorship and recognizes the life-changing impact it can have on a young person.
