Briefly introduce yourself and explain why you are interested in becoming a mentor for BranchOut!:
Branch Out! is a great program that supports my peers who need help in school and come from different backgrounds, and I would love to have the chance to give them assistance in the subjects I am strong in. Being in the STEM program at Montgomery Blair, I am confident in my abilities to teach math and computer science. I have also taken Spanish for five years; I can help others taking the language. I would like to have the opportunity to volunteer and reach out to students and peers, and I believe that I have the leadership and educational experience to be an effective mentor.
Helping others has always been something that I want to prioritize, whether it’s in the form of community service or in this case, mentoring. Participating in different programs as a leader, counsellor, teacher, and volunteer has given me the opportunity to meet new people and learn things that I would never have encountered on my own. I enjoy expanding my knowledge on how different people live their lives, especially if those customs are different from mine. It helps me understand new perspectives and assess the experiences I go through.
