WHY THIS WORK IS IMPORTANT TO ME
After I was diagnosed with ADHD during my first year of college, I quickly was forced to learn my differences as a learner. After accepting this and learning to accommodate, I was able to excel as a student. I want to help others understand and feel confident with their learning differences not only to excel, but also to feel proud of their differences.

FAVORITE PART OF MY JOB
Hearing the stories of the Mentors and Mentees about how Eye to Eye has truly changed their lives, and helping to be a part of that movement.
