    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.

    I want to be the reason someone smiles,

    but I feel like that is selfish. I want to be the reason someone looks forward to waking up. Just, to make a difference. I know a lot of people who have that affect on me, just wondering if it reciprocated.
