Beza and her mentee, KB

I've been volunteering with Enroot for the past two years, during which time I have worked with two incredible students who recently immigrated to the US. Bonding with my mentees by sharing my personal experiences and learning of their interesting life stories has been very rewarding. I have also enjoyed supporting them on homework as well as college application and career exploration processes.

What excites me most about volunteering with Enroot is knowing that I am part of a program that has a strong impact in empowering immigrant students. As someone who recently moved to the US, I understand the impact that mentors have, and I am honored to work with a program that values such relationships.

Volunteering at Enroot has been rewarding and it is one of the highlights of my week! It has also allowed me to be more self reflective on my experiences.
