Briefly introduce yourself and explain why you are interested in becoming a mentor for BranchOut!:
Hi! My name is Pranay Dhawan and I'm a rising junior at Oakton High School. When I first heard about Branch Out! from a friend I was excited about the opportunity to contribute to the community. One quality of mine that I believe would make me an effective member of the mentoring team is that I have excellent communication skills, which allows me to work well on a team. These skills can be attributed to my past experience in DECA, as well as playing multiple sports throughout my life. I make up for my limited tutoring experience with a combination of commitment, patience, and a deep desire to contribute to society. Through the utilization of said skills and a growth mindset, I have the ability to establish a continuous and profound relationship with the Branch Out! team as well as the rest of its participants.
