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

My name is Stacy Meng and I am currently a junior at James Madison High School. I am interested in becoming a mentor because I strongly believe in the importance of Branchout’s mission. Growing up, I actually didn’t think math/science were very appealing subjects, but after discovering the variety of options in STEM, I was able to find multiple topics I was interested in and eventually developed a love for math/science in general; I hope to share this experience with other students so they can realize their passions earlier than I did. Additionally, I have always hoped to break the sheltered bubble I live in and confront new experiences that would heighten my awareness of the world’s realities. I still remember how last summer at the James Lee Community Center as mentors finished their week of volunteering the kids they formed a close relationship with would talk about how much they missed them. That was when I truly understood the impact Branchout mentors make on the students they tutor, so having the privilege of being a mentor again would give me the opportunity to make a difference in children’s outlook on education and STEM.
