Q: What is one of your favorite things to do with the young person you are mentoring?
A: It’s not necessary a favorite thing but it’s those dates where I really connect with the child with conversation and laughter.
Q: Who is the most influential person in your life? (and why?)
A: At this stage in my life I can’t narrow it down to just one person but all the wonderful people in my life, good books I’ve read and not forgetting the lovely Oprah Winfrey.
Q: Where is the most interesting place you have traveled and why?
Recommended Stories For You
A: I would still have to say Israel, with its amazing history, biblical connotations, cultural differences, beautiful landscape and incredible sunsets. I could go on but I wont so just go check it out for yourself.
Q: Share an experience that made an impact on you.
A: I went over the handle bars on my mountain bike and it really made an impact! hahahahah
Q: What words of wisdom would you pass on to someone who is thinking about becoming a mentor?
A: I’ve found a lot of people think they don’t have what it takes to be a mentor or time, but I found it’s the quality not quantity and just think back to your own childhood, I would love to have had someone to go share fun things that I wouldn’t normally get the chance to experience, someone I could talk to. Iit’s a good feeling to know you’re special to them.
