    Become a Mentor

    I would love to be a mentor to a child in need and make a difference in their life for the better. Every kid wants someone to listen to and be themselves around and I can see myself doing just that.

    Positive ..

    At work I often notice how the dynamics of a group can change when another person arrives ..  One person can clearly seem to carry gloom and meaness whilst another carries smiles and laughter. I would much prefer to be the second person ..
