Briefly introduce yourself and explain why you are interested in becoming a mentor for BranchOut!:

I always considered it as a gift that I grew up bilingual in Spanish and English, since it has allowed me to converse with individuals of varying nationalities, diverse backgrounds, and a multitude of experiences. I have traded stories and lessons that have taught me to appreciate the complexity of individuals. This same gift has also opened my eyes to the prosperity of immigrants, and the fantastic things they have done. At the same time, these interactions have highlighted that not all immigrants or individuals are so lucky. If I were to be accepted, Branchout would give me the means to share stories with individuals of all backgrounds. I'd be able to, in my own small way, give them the means to share their stories, experiences, and goals by imparting a small token of knowledge. Whether it be in the English or Spanish language, or something such as correctly adding or subtracting rational expressions, I will fulfill my part and teach others. Through Branchout, I hope to hear their voice and help them share it.
