Briefly introduce yourself and explain why you are interested in becoming a mentor for BranchOut!:
My interest in the Branch Out program is solely based on my interest to help assist and educate others. After attending two open seminars between 2017-2019 that Dr. Wu hosted, I felt that Branch Out definitely matched my interests and objectives. I believe that everyone deserves an equal opportunity and should be provided with a substantial amount of resources. Unfortunately, some minorities are struggling with certain fields of life because their starting point is held back with internal and personal problems. Having experience as a leader and observing others, I learned the real importance of leadership is not directing and operating an important role above others, but it is the service and resources that a leader provides to its subjects that make them outstanding to perform at such a high level. It is very easy to awaken talent and interest in yourself, but it is a challenge to be able to do a similar thing towards others. These reasons compelled me to join Branch Out. I want to carry out these important aspects of mentoring and leadership, make a difference in one’s life, and deliver them to minorities who deserve the resources to be successful in life.
