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?

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.
